Dear Joel,

As you might know, I dedicated more then 40 years of my life to  
research on the history of the Russian-Chinese boundary formation. So  
I know from original sources the real history of the Chinese Empire's  
territorial expansion. So the D'Anville map of China is much more  
objective then the modern Chinese history text books.

I had published three books on this theme and a few papers, some of  
them in English, and I became in a way a persona non grata with my  
Chinese colleagues although they did not published anything opposing  
my views.

Please, find below some references on my publications.
