Summary:

"Cambridge University Press reversed course Monday after facing a major backlash from academics over its decision to bow to Chinese government demands to censor an important academic journal.

The British-based publisher announced Friday it had removed 300 articles and book reviews from a version of the China Quarterly website available in China at the request of the government. But on Monday, it rescinded that decision after outrage from the international academic community.

It said the original move had only been a 'temporary decision' pending discussion with academic leadership of the University of Cambridge and a scheduled meeting with the Chinese importer in Beijing."
