|Abstract||Newspaper founded on 23 December 1898 by Liang Qichao after he was exiled to Japan: its purpose was to introduce Western political theories and democratic ideas to China. Qingyibao was published every 10 days. Each issue included political editorials, news, translations and book reviews. Qingyibao criticized the Qing conservatives headed by Dowager Cixi and praised the Guangxu Emperor who supported radical reform. The mission of the newspaper was to advocate Liang's ideal of constitutional reform. On 21 December 190I a fire destroyed the paper's offices and publication ceased. Source: James Z.
