 The Korea Times : China Stirs History Furor   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Koreans proudly say the country has a history of 5,000 years as its first kingdom, Kojoson, was established in 2333 B.C. That ancient kingdom has been considered Korea's origin and many elementary schools here have statues of Tangun, Korea's legendary founding father.
Koreans are enraged by the ``Northeast Project,'' a state-funded program for the Center of China's Borderland History and Geography Research, which apparently has concluded that ancient Korean kingdoms were under Chinese dominion.
Some Korean analysts warned that the reason for this continuing history spat, which resurfaced recently, is a desire by Chinese officials to put the present border in question in case North Korea suddenly collapses.

 RFA: On Human Dignity, Prisoners of War, and Publishers: Chinese Author Ha Jin
WASHINGTON—Chinese author Ha Jin, who has lived in the United States for nearly 20 years and writes in English, says his latest prize-winning novel, War Trash, is unlikely to be read in China because of its controversial subject matter: prisoners of war.
Jin said the title of his novel, which has won him his second PEN/Faulkner award, recalled the English expression “white trash” and was intended to reflect the way in which common soldiers are frequently treated as expendable in war.
Meanwhile, Chinese author Yan Lianke said Jin’s ability to write in English made him highly unusual—though he didn’t believe Chinese fiction written in Chinese was inferior to Jin’s.
