Contemporary Chinese Societies: Continuity and Change
, . Columbia University Press.
For students, businesspeople, or anyone planning to travel to China, here is multimedia presentation of the diversity of modern China in the context of its traditional roots. As both an integrated curriculum and "virtual" introduction, this new CD-ROM combines imagery, music, and the spoken language with text and narrative that are grounded in the latest scholarship. Traversing from map to linked image, from video footage to a summoned explanation, from glossary to spoken pronunciation, the user's journey of knowledge is quickly underway. The CD-ROM even logs the progress!
