Zhao Zhizhen: Preface

When the old man encounters delicious food outside, he always wants to bring it back for the children to taste. If I happen to encounter my favorite food when I was a child, and it has been rare in the market for many years, I will be even more excited and nostalgic - I have been busy publishing the "Soviet Popular Science Series" in the past few years, and I feel like this. In 1956, I was a junior high school student at No. 21 Middle School in Wuhan. After school every day at 4:00 p.m., I rushed to the Wuhan library opposite. The content of reading is rich and simple, all of which are all Soviet popular science books. The auntie administrator also looked at me, an obsessed little reader, with a different look, and always smiled and picked up the books I didn't finish yesterday. Whenever "Knowledge is Power" or "Science Illustrated" of the month is published, or when a new book comes into the library, they give me a sneak peek. It was these Soviet popular science works that broadened my teenage horizons and minds, inspired my earliest questions and thoughts, and cultivated my lifelong interest and love for science. My "complex" about Soviet popular science works is self-evident. Popular science books I once had a chat with Mr. Ye Yonglie. It turned out that he was also a loyal fan of Soviet science masters Beleriman and Yilin. It was only later that I learned that our predecessors in science popularization, such as Gao Shiqi, Dong Chuncai, Tao Xingzhi, and Gu Junzheng, were all deeply influenced by Soviet popular science works. Drinking water to think of the source, to find the root and return to the root, it is the Soviet popular science work that has nurtured a generation of Chinese popular science people. Since then, with the changes in the world, Soviet popular science works have almost disappeared in China. In the era of reform and opening up, the main interest and attention of our popular science publishing industry turned to the United States and the United Kingdom. I myself am a huge fan of Asimov, Sagan, Hawking. The Soviet Union disintegrated in 1991, coupled with the sharp decline of Russian-speaking talents in China, Soviet popular science works in China are even colder, and rarely seen. It's also a coincidence. When I was engaged in popular science writing and needed to consult a lot of materials and literature, the "home field" of the "Taoshu" hobby gradually turned to the Internet. After years of accumulation, my disk has stored more than 10,000 e-books. Unexpectedly, I have obtained more than 300 Soviet scientific books through different methods and channels, and all of them are in English. It can be seen how much the Soviet Union attached great importance to international cultural exchanges. It's been a long time, like a lifetime, a long absence! I browsed these "treasures if they came" on the computer, and I felt a great sense of reunion. I can't summarize the style and characteristics of Soviet popular science works, but I can immediately experience the familiar atmosphere and taste. Most of these works were published in the 1970s and 1980s, when the technology of the Soviet Union and the United States were keeping pace with each other, and it was also the golden years of popular science creation before the disintegration of the Soviet Union. Such an important historical stage, such a large amount of civilization achievements, has almost become a blank in China. No matter how wrong it is, it is a kind of lack and regret. Leaving aside the epochal continuity and cultural integrity of Chinese popular science publications, this loophole and shortcoming should be filled. But it is also very necessary to correct the long-term partial eclipse of youth mental nutrition and improve the balance and diversity of popular science books. In addition to British and American popular science books, we should also show more genres and traditions, and provide other frames of reference and sources of information. It is true that human science and technology have developed rapidly in the past few decades, but books on the history of science, scientists, basic principles and thinking methods of science will not be out of date. I especially appreciate the unity of knowledge and readability of Soviet popular science works: the rich and profound humanistic feelings, the noble and harmonious taste, the breadth and thickness of analogy, and the sincere attitude of equality. In particular, the vivid illustrations that are so beautiful and unforgettable are mostly from the hands of famous painters who understand science, which makes people miss the Chinese popular science painter Mr. Miao Yintang. At first, I selected 50 volumes of the "Excellent Works of Soviet Popular Science", which are divided into "high school volume", "junior high school volume", "primary school volume" and "preschool volume". Thanks to Wu Shulin, chairman of the China Publishing Association, and Lei Yuanliang, an old leader of the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television, for their full support and solutions; the China Copyright Association for helping to find the copyright owner and depositing the advanced remuneration on their behalf; Wu Jike, Bian Yulin, Yin Chuanhong and other teachers and friends in the popular science community He Long, the president of Hubei Children's Publishing House, has a unique vision and is responsible for it. We decided to publish 10 books on the pathfinder first, and then take a long-term view according to the standard of "low opening, broad spectrum, full color". And from cover to back, keep the original layout. So that readers can weigh the pros and cons and consider the profit and loss. When these 10 small books are about to be published, most of the original authors have died, the publishing house has disappeared, and even the country has disintegrated. But the work becomes an eternal independent life. That's the power of books. At this time, I felt more like an obliged bee, eagerly and clumsily dancing a figure 8 in front of my partner to report the direction and path of the flowers.
