·Discussion on the involution tendency of local chronicles work and its countermeasuresQi Yingchun（34）
Abstract：Involution is an anthropological concept，referring to the phenomenon that a social or cultural model stagnates and spirals into a state of internal friction after reaching a certain form at a certain stage of development.The socalled involution of local chronicles means that the local chronicles have entered a state of "expansion with no development".To eliminate the influence of involution on the work of local chronicles，we should vigorously promote the rule of law in chronicles compilation，specify the functions of local chronicles institutions，establish the independent discipline of local chronicles，and formulate various "national standards" in the "chains" of chronicles compilation.
·On the compilation method of Chinese dialect records in the third round of chronicles compilation——Taking Lianzhou dialect as an exampleLiu Xianzhao（39）
Abstract：As the only dialect documented with phonetic system in the provincial，municipal and county records among the Chinese dialects in the Beibu Gulf region of Guangxi（Beihai，Qinzhou，and Fangchenggang included），Lianzhou dialect can be taken as a typical case to summarize and refine the compilation method of Chinese dialect records in the third round of chronicles compilation.There are some flaws in records of Lianzhou dialect in the first and second rounds of Guangxi chronicles compilation，mainly including paying excessive attention to the description of the origin and development of the dialect，and writing down the views that have not become widely recognized in the academic community into chronicles；improperly handling the issue how the dialect speakers call themselves.The compilation of local chronicles needs both experts and "multi-disciplinary scholars".The local chroniclers should avoid the above problems in compiling Chinese dialect records in the third round of chronicles compilation，make positive contributions to work related to verification of dialect corpus，the distribution range of dialect population and demographic statistics，and work with linguists to promote the research and inheritance of Chinese dialects.

Abstract：Book Series of Old Annals of Prefectures and Counties of Shanghai is also a research database of Shanghai（Jiangsu）language.This paper takes the dialect vocabulary recorded in it as the starting point of research.There are three kinds of materials for dialect vocabulary research in the book series：listed materials，unlisted materials，and materials written scatteringly in other volumes.The former two are the direct materials of dialect vocabulary research，while the latter is the indirect materials.The dialect vocabulary recorded in the annals，including almost all parts of speech，is closely related to agricultural production，rural life，and rural customs，permeated with strong characteristics of agricultural society and regional features of Shanghai and southern Jiangsu，and "most of the vocabulary and other language phenomena recorded are still in use in modern times".It is of great value to collect，compile，sort out and conduct research on dialect vocabulary in terms of discussing the historical evolution of dialects，geographical distribution of dialects，and even promoting the research process of the history of Chinese dialects.It is a long-term，arduous task to mine out resources of local records and promote dialect research.

·A man of resources knowing how to do business-On Shanghai Daotai Wu Jianzhang under changes of late QingWang Jian（67）
Abstract：Shanghai Daotai Wu Jianzhang came to Shanghai from Guangzhou during the turbulent era of the late Qing and became a local official from a comprador of a foreign firm.Having experienced many important historical events such as the Opium War，the Movement of the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom，and the Xiaodaohui Uprising，he deeply demonstrated the image of "being resourceful，successful，and rich through money making".Wu Jianzhang was good at accumulating money，shrewd in handling affairs and proficient in communicating with foreigners，and was highly appreciated by the Qing court and all walks of life in the local areas owing to these abilities.His official career was extended until the outbreak of the Xiaodaohui Uprising.Wu was removed from the position of Shanghai Daotai due to the uprising，but it did not endanger his life.Such was a rare case in the past when local officials were confronted with such movement，which could also be attributed to his personal abilities.Therefore，focusing on the research of Shanghai Daotai Wu Jianzhang can be a better way to analyze the changes of individual fate under the turbulent situation of the late Qing，especially the compradors and officials at the trading ports such as Shanghai.
