Chuang Chi-fa (also known as Zhuang Jifa; ; born 24 May 1936) is a Taiwanese historian who studies Chinese history, in particular Manchu history. Chuang is one of the few linguistics researchers with a mastery of the Manchu language.
His 1982 book "Qing Gaozong shiquan wugong yanjiu" (researching the Qianlong Emperor's "Ten Great Campaigns") was called a ''tour de force'' by Yingcong Dai of William Paterson University. With Ch’en Chieh-hsien he was one of the first historians to research the Manchu language documents in the Qing dynasty archives at the National Palace Museum. Provided by Wikipedia
