Liu Tzu Chien (December 19, 1919 – September 30, 1993), better known as James T. C. Liu, was a Chinese historian and a leading scholar on Song dynasty history. He was a professor at Princeton University for more than two decades.
As a young student at Yenching University, he was twice arrested (and tortured in the second arrest) by the Kuomintang government. After the Second Sino-Japanese War he served as historical consultant at the International Military Tribunal for the Far East. Thereafter he went to study in the United States, obtaining his Ph.D. at the University of Pittsburgh.
