Wang Jingwei was known to be one of modern China’s great orators. Unlike most of his contemporaries, Wang’s public speeches could be truly spell-binding and persuasive. Yet recordings of his speeches are few in number and exceedingly rare today. These nine recordings, some in Cantonese, others in Southwestern Mandarin, provide a sample for researchers to experience the tone and cadence of Wang’s speechmaking. The texts of Wang’s many other speeches not included here can be found on this page.
