I will post tons of intriguing stuff which I compiled over the years, and want to share them properly with sources, instead of random posts using merely my memory
But it will take a few months to dump it here (literally posting this message just to prove I am not a bot and have to wait years again to register), so please don't delete this account, I wish to keep my privacy. (Post is not from my IP)
Any links to books that would give me a clue about what happened in SE China/Taiwan in 1640s or so - the emergence of the Qing? @Mabzynn once posted links from a book and reading it, I learned more about what really went on than in decades of "copy and paste" historical reading. I really should open up to this area more seriously. I've avoided it since I left the academy ten years ago.
