Description:


This book is a newspaper reader for the American student who has completed one and a half to two years of modern Chinese. The fourteen selections included in the reader show how the U.S. was depicted in commentaries and essays in "The People's Daily" from 1990 through 1991. Covering the education crisis, social injustice, human rights violations, and racial discrimination, the articles are generally critical of, and even hostile to, American society as a whole: their controversial nature will elicit student interest and classroom participation.

Each selection is presented in both traditional and simplified characters, with a copy of the actual newspaper article and a cartoon included: each is also accompanied by a vocabulary glossary, sentence patterns annotated in English, and suggested discussion topics. In addition to the fourteen glossed selections, eight unglossed essays are included for use as supplementary reading materials.

Audio and video materials are available for use with this text. For further information, contact the Chinese Linguistics Project, 231 Palmer Hall, Princeton University, Princeton, N.J. 08544. (609-258-4269).
