After 20 years effort, Part I and Part Ⅱ of 20 volumes was published in 2017. As a series of literature academic monograph, this publication achieved widely social impact, they are highly credited as the infrastructure construction of the national science and culture undertaking. Nevertheless, the shortage of the publication is with a big name but less of solid content, and comparing with the techniques and crafts, social humanity perspective is rather simpler. So the revision and expansion are needed.
