For currents events in China, the China News Digest is good. Volunteer stringers from China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong contribute most of the news, it seems. There are several different CNDs, but the one I subscribe to is the one for general news about China, called CND-Global. It is distributed every other day and usually features 5-10 news items, sports news, and financial news.

To subscribe, send the message SUB CHINA-NN <your name> to LISTSERV@ASUVM.INRE.ASU.EDU (or LISTSERV@ASUACAD.BITNET).

There are also CND lists for news briefs for and about Chinese students in Canada, in Europe and the Pacific, and in the US.

More information and addresses for other lists can be obtained from an article in China Exchange News 22:4 (Winter 1994) published by the Committee on Scholarly Communication with China in Washington. The article is China Studies Resources on the Internet, although it is by no means complete or up-to-date.
