"Among the selected images are photos taken by soldiers of the US Army Signal Corps portraying the Chinese and US troops living, drilling, and fighting battles against the Japanese aggressors in the China Burma India Theater, and photos preserved by the Institute of Modern History of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, the Academy of History of Chinese Resistance Against Japanese Aggression, and China Pictorial," said Fang.

BookExpo America (BEA) 2015, the largest annual book trade fair in the United States, is held at the Javits Convention Center in New York City from Wednesday to Friday.

BEA, which dates back to 1947 and was then known as the American Booksellers Association Convention and Trade Show, is usually held in a major US city in late May or early June. It offers the largest selection of English language titles and is also the largest gathering of booksellers, librarians, retailers and book industry professionals in North America.

China, an emerging power in the international publishing industry, has been invited as the Guest of Honor for BEA 2015's Global Market Forum (GMF) program, which features three full days of education sessions, exhibits and off-site cultural events.
