The Chinese Military History Society will hold its 2017 conference in Jacksonville, Florida on Thursday, March 30. The theme of this year's conference is “Chinese Military History in Global Context,” which is understood to include topics relating to foreign influences on China, Chinese influences elsewhere, China’s involvement in global conflicts, and comparative studies. Papers may address any historical period from antiquity to the present. As usual, papers are not required to address the conference theme; proposals on other subjects related to the military history of China and other East Asian countries will be considered as well.
 
The time and place of the 2017 CMHS conference were chosen to facilitate participants' attendance at the 2017 annual meeting of the Society for Military History (SMH), which will be held at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville-Riverfront from March 30 to April 2 (with panels beginning on Friday, March 31). Although there is no registration fee for the CMHS meeting, attendance at the SMH conference requires separate registration and payment of applicable fees. For more information about the 2017 SMH conference, please visit <http://www.smh-hq.org/2017/2017annualmeeting.html>.
 

 
Volume 5.1 of the Journal of Chinese Military History will be published later in June. It will include four book reviews and the following articles:
 
Alan Baumler, "Keep Calm and Carry On: Airmindedness and Mass Mobilization during the War of Resistance"
