This poster describes the birth of the first independently produced database on the history of the Peoples Republic of China, entitled "The Database for the History of Contemporary Chinese Political Movements." The database includes previously unavailable primary sources for all important stages in China from 1949 to 1976, including the Cultural Revolution. Significant issues such as international copyright concerns and the imprisonment of its chief editor that emerged during its creation are presented.
