#English title: "Facism in China - Japan's Puppet States"
: Japan's ultra-nationalist circles adopted ways of thinking with the elements of ‘racial’ ideology, militarism, authoritarianism, and imperial claims. The ideology reaching into the state leadership as "military and Tennō fascism" fundamentally changed Japan's society. Beginning with the occupation of Manchuria, the Japanese military used puppet regimes that introduced fascist ideology on Chinese soil.

Martin Woesler, Hunan Normal University/China, University Witten/Germany. "Leidenschaft im Traum der Roten Kammer" Mitteilungsblatt (Deutsche China-Gesellschaft) 62 (2019) 41-58;
English title: "Passion in the 'Dream of the Red Chamber'"
: Passion is what has made the novel Red Chamber Dreams so successful and what still makes it so attractive: the passion of the first love between hero and heroine, who grow up in the favor of the Emperor in a paradise-like garden. The novel fascinates by describing the nuances between physical and platonic love, breaking the taboos of homosexuality and sexual fantasies. The author himself was driven by passion: he felt personal responsibility that the paradise-like garden was lost, and felt a necessity to document and eternalize his own love and life in all facets. Only the novel allowed him to represent the China of that time, with its manners and customs, clothing and kitchen, mentality and belief, but also corruption and degeneration in all aspects and in all walks of life - from the imperial court to the existence of slaves and beggars. Passionately, the first readers discussed the manuscripts with the author. The passion of its readers made the novel the symbol of Chinese culture, cult, the most widely read novel of all time in China and the fourth most read novel in the world. With passion, early translators and reviewers as well as generations of scholars of letters have digged deep into the novel. No other work of literature has been studied at so many universities. This paper explores the question of what triggers this passion about and within this novel.

English title: "The Imperor's Admiral. The Sea Journeys of Eunuch Zheng He"
: In 1405, on behalf of the Third Ming Emperor Yongle, a huge fleet of 250 ships and 30,000 men was sent on board under the command of Yong Le’s loyal eunuch Zheng He to inform the countries of Southeast Asia of China's greatness and power. Some of these state-of-the-art ships, researchers suggest, could have been about 120 meters in length. In front of such ships, Vasco da Gama's ships were like nutshells.
The admiral of this mighty ship fleet is revered as a national hero in China, but in Germany he is hardly known: Who was this legendary Zheng He and what was he carrying on his huge treasure ships? What logistical excellence was necessary to feed all the people and animals carried along? And what about the tribute system?
China's role as the leading naval nation of the first half of the 15th century is one of the most exciting, but unfortunately also one of the most puzzling chapters in Chinese medieval history, since virtually nothing - neither documents nor boat remains - has been preserved.

#English title: "Identity and Hybridity - Chinese Culture and Aesthetics in the Age of Globalisation"
: Traditional Chinese aesthetics is a modern way of looking at pre-modern Chinese art. This art not only concerns poetry, calligraphy and painting (as the outstanding scholarly arts), but also covers areas such as architecture, pottery, bronze sculptures, music and martial arts, etc. Many of these arts follow common principles. These principles have contributed to a Chinese identity. Hybridity appears to be a characteristic of contemporary Chinese art, especially painting. Chinese art today shows itself in constant dialogue with its tradition as well as with Western art and art history. Much of what is considered “Chinese” art today, is produced by Chinese artists in a way Westerners expect Chinese art to be. It is made for the international art market, still dominated by Western preferences.
Key words: Chinese aesthetics, Chinese art, pre-modern, poetry, calligraphy, paintings, principles, hybridity

: China’s legal reforms since the Qing dynasty are a result of various modernization developments. The political unification of the Republic of China in 1928 created a variety of legal norms, some of which still endure Taiwan today and also influenced the modern law of the People's Republic of China. Furthermore, China before 1949 brought forth outstanding world renown law experts.

#English title: The Hui-Muslims of Liaocheng City"
: The Hui-Muslim community in the town of Liaocheng is introduced with some of their socio-cultural specifica like adaption of habits and traditions from their non-Muslim environ-ment (especially the borrowing of so-called 'ritualistic expendable goods'), religious 'infra-structure' (like mosques, clerics etc.), and the question of specific Muslim clothing. It is con-cluded that the borrowings are also a result of the small size of the community and the duration of living among an overwhelming majority of Non-Muslims.

English title: "The Unspoken in 'Dream of the Red Chamber'"
: Chinese literary works are often influenced by censorship, be it by others or by the author himself. In China and the West there are different traditions of decency. With the Red Chamber Dreams, we have a novel of rich subtlety, but luckily we also have a novel at hand that comes with a hemerneutical tradition only comparable to the bible. So we have more products of scholarly discourse about the question, what this novel expresses directly and what it tries to keep secret. There are various manuscript versions, handwritten advices of relatives / confidants before publication, an army of scholars who try to interpret every aspect of the novel, some trying to situate it in real life etc. Here we are interested in the question, according to the manuscript comments in the novel, which biographical facts may be revealed in the novel, which must remain unspoken and why. Reasons are sought in taboos (like suicide), in the protection of real persons, in the avoidance of lese majeste etc. The author seems to be aware of the concealment and seems to play with it, if he chooses the protagonist name Zhen Shiyin 甄 士隱, homophonous with 真 事 隐 "The true facts are hidden". All these precautions (perhaps narrative strategies) could not prevent the temporary ban on the novel. One of the main interpretation schools of the Dream is the Decryption School (索隐派, literally: School of the Search for the Hidden), whose assignment of novel elements to contemporary reality is more rewarding to us than its conspiracy and puzzles theories. Special attention should also be given to morally ethical reasons to keep silent: While the novel explains why it is not a romance novel (usually with some pornographic descriptions), John Minford translates two sexually charged scenes that remain unspoken in the Chinese original, for the Western Readers almost extravagantly vivid.

#English title: "A Country deprived of Art - Art and Political Power in Present Day China by the Example of Literature, Film, Internet and Digitalization"
: In dictatorial societies, storytellers (artists, writers, film directors, bloggers etc.) and the rulers have a complex relationship. In China this has become particularly developed and has grown through millennia-old tradition (in Area of tension wen yi zai dao and shi yan shi) and also through traumatic experiences since 1949 in campaigns and in the Cultural Revolution. This study asks to what extent art still remains art if it devoted itself to one ideology (or commerce). In contemporary film, there's a trend to (visual) violence and pop art propaganda movies, and in digitalization, there's an increase in security at the expense of privacy, data protection and creative artistic expression.

#English title: "Antique Classics on Chinese Medicine. Huang Di Nei Jing Ling Shu"
: This text has been published as part of a preface to Paul Unschuld's commented German translation of Huang Di Nei Jing Ling Shu for the first time, but deserves further distribution than as a "mere" part of a specialist publication. The texts presented by him are early evidence of mankind that people wanted to take a conscious step from esoteric medicine to 'conventional medicine', from superstition to rationalization, from religiousness to secularism. It was clear that Chinese medicine would not turn away from superstition that and this was because of the lack of distribution of the texts. Unschuld proves that despite the locations in organs and descriptions of interactions, which still seem esoteric for us, the rejection of ghosts and the parallelization with the state model (if the body is healthy, it is like the state being in order) is a step towards rationalization.
