Notability[edit]

I noticed that a previous incarnation of this article was deleted over the summer on the grounds that Minxin Pei lacked notability. The responsible editor was surely not familiar with the field of contemporary China studies; if he was, he would have immediately recognized Pei's significance; he is probably one of the most frequently cited China scholars in the United States today. But if further proof were required, I thought it was interesting that, until I rebuilt this article, Pei was the only one of 100 prominent intellectuals on this list who didn't have his own Wikipedia page.
