《壹玖壹壹——從鴉片戰爭到軍閥混戰的百年影像史》

作者: 劉香成
出版社: 商務印書館(香港)有限公司
ISBN:9789620755903
分類: 歷史 > 中國歷史 > 中國近代史

從鴉片戰爭到軍閥混戰,中國人視這段動盪歲月為「百年憂慮」,其中蘊含的情感至今仍縈繞不去,是中華民族對歷史的集體記憶。但有關這段重要歷史的相片、影像,大部份由外國人所攝,在過往的百年一直散落於世界各地,成為中國近代史中的一個缺口。為尋找這失落的歷史,劉香成特意展開一次長途的創作之旅,橫跨歐亞、美洲,遍訪各地的公共展館和私人收藏品,搜集大量有關辛亥革命前後近一世紀的珍貴圖片,並用3,000小時作圖片復修,結集成《壹玖壹壹》這部最完美的中國近代攝影史,重現不能磨滅的集體歷史回憶。 《壹玖壹壹》從辛亥革命產生的原因、爆發的過程及取得的影響三個部分入手,以大歷史視角重構辛亥革命前後幾十年的時代社會圖景。努力探尋在這歷史洪流中主要人物如孫中山、袁世凱等思想的形成經歷,真實地呈現以往被忽視的歷史細節。再配上來自中國大陸、臺灣和海外的學者或傳媒人從不同角度的解讀,讓讀者能再次深入認識從鴉片戰爭到軍閥混戰動盪巨變的這段歷史,共同反思過去,展望未來。
