Investigating
Japan
Prehistory to Postwar
Reconstruction
By Grant Miocevich
Ideal for: Grades 6–12.
Part of the Longman Australia Modern History series
designed for high school students, Investigating
Japan focuses on the social, economic, and political
forces that transformed Japan from a self-sufficient
agrarian society into a world power. The text begins
with a background study of Japan’s distant past and
then follows the main aspects of Japanese society
through 1955. First-person narratives and other
primary sources give life to the periods of history
described in each section. Activities encourage
students to analyze and make observations about the
source materials, and a bibliography directs inter-
ested students to other sources of information. This
volume is an excellent addition to Japanese language
courses and any curriculum featuring world events
and cultures. Longman Australia, 1999, 8 x 11.5, B/W

Japanese Visual
Culture
Explorations in the World
of Manga and Anime
Edited by
Mark W. MacWilliams
Manga (comic books or graphic novels) and anime
(animated films) are two of the most universally
recognized expressions of contemporary Japanese
culture. Japanese Visual Culture brings together an
international group of scholars from various back-
grounds and disciplines to probe the subtleties of
these deceptively simple art forms. In addition to
exploring the historical, cultural, sociological, and
religious dimensions of manga and anime,
contributors also examine specific sub-genres,
artists, and stylistics. The book also addresses
spirituality, the use of visual culture by new Japanese
religious movements, Japanese Goth, nostalgia and
Japanese pop, comics for girls, and more. ME

The Legend of
Semimaru
Blind Musician of Japan
By Susan Matisoff
Who was Semimaru? Whether he was a blind
wandering lute player or a beggar who was once a
prince, Semimaru’s legend has inspired many of
Japan’s literary giants for over a thousand years.
From origins in the Golden Age of classical Japan, the
story of Semimaru inspired significant written lore up
through the 13th century. These works about
Semimaru form a fascinating map of culture, class,
and religion in the tumultuous last days of the Heian
period. Matisoff’s The Legend of Semimaru is the
definitive English-language study of this fascinating
figure.
Included here are translations of the three most
important Semimaru works, as well as the seven
classical waka poems that have been attributed to
Semimaru. This new edition includes an updated
preface, a revised translation of the Noh play Ausaka
Madman, and a supplementary bibliography. Cheng
& Tsui, 2006, 5.5 x 8.5, 320pp.

Literature
Ferris Wheel
101 Modern and
Contemporary Tanka
Edited & translated by
Kozue Uzawa,
Amelia Fielden
"[Ferris Wheel] can be a door into a whole wide
world of poetry that the reader will always
remember with a special sense of gratitude and
return to with renewed appreciation." — Janine
Beichman, author of Masaoka Shiki
Winner of the 2007 Japan–U.S. Friendship Commis-
sion Prize for the Translation of Japanese Literature,
Ferris Wheel delivers the world of modern Japanese
tanka to Western readers. Astonishingly complex
imagery and emotions condensed into 31 syllables
are the hallmarks of these evocative vignettes. Tanka
have been an essential part of Japan’s literary
aesthetic for more than 1,300 years, and Ferris Wheel
shows how modern masters have renewed tanka as
a dynamic expression of Japanese sensibility. Here,
Uzawa and Fielden have translated 101 tanka, many
appearing for the first time in English, that combine
classical form and an unmistakably modern sensi-
bility. Each is presented in Japanese, with romanized
transliteration and English translation. This format
makes Ferris Wheel as relevant to translators and
students of Japanese as it is welcoming to everyone
interested in Japanese poetry. Cheng & Tsui, 2006,
5.5 x 8.5, 160pp.

Tangled Hair
Selected Tanka from

Japanese Bilingual
Edition)
By Akiko Yosano
Translated by

sensational impact on Japanese literature, and we are
pleased to make this highly praised translation
(originally published 30 years ago) available once again

the tanka, the most popular form of Japanese poetry
for 1,200 years, into a modern poetic form. In this
new work, her tanka appear in their original Japanese,
in romanized transliterations, and in English transla-
tion, along with a new preface and notes by Sanford

Japanese Women
Poets
An Anthology
Translated by
Hiroaki Sato
". . . [a] must-have addition to international poetry
shelves. Highly recommended." — The Midwest
Book Review
Throughout history, Japanese women have excelled in
poetry—from the folk songs of the Kojiki, to the age of
haikai in the nineteenth century and the sensational
poetry of today. Japanese Women Poets is an
unrivaled English-language collection that features
more than 100 female Japanese poets, with samples
of their work arranged chronologically and including all
major verse forms: choka, tanka, haikai, kanshi (verse
written in Chinese), and free verse. The poems
engage traditional themes as well as more modern
topics such as the devastations of war, conflicts
between child-rearing and work, and the refugee
experience. The book provides explanations of terms
and references, a glossary of poetic terms, a
chronology, and a bibliography. ME Sharpe, 2008,
6 x 9, B/W illustrations, 592pp.

Kokinshu¯
A Collection of Poems
Ancient and Modern
Translated by Laurel
Rasplica Rodd, Mary
Catherine Henkenius
This book is the first complete translation of the
tenth-century Kokinsh
-
u, one of the most important

public arena after a renewed interest in Chinese
literature, its compilers linked the poems by topic,
theme, imagery, and chronological and narrative
progression to form an integrated anthology. Winner
of the 1982 Japan–U.S. Friendship Commission’s
Friendship Literary Translation Award, Rodd’s work
presents annotated translations of the 1,111 poems,
and of the original Japanese and Chinese prefaces.
Includes a translator’s introduction and an essay on
Chinese influences on the Kokinshu¯ prefaces.

Adventures in Japanese
アドヴェンチャー日本語
By Hiromi Peterson, Naomi Hirano-Omizo
Ideal for: Grades 9–12; also recommended for
grades 7–8.
Drawing on their experience in American classrooms,
authors Hiromi Peterson and Naomi Hirano-Omizo
have developed a course that combines cultural
activities with beginning-to-advanced language-learn-
ing instruction in all four language skills.
Adventures in Japanese has been widely adopted
across the nation. The series is user-friendly, fun, and
aids teachers in integrating the National Standards for
Foreign Language Education’s "5-Cs": Communica-
tion, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons, and Com-
munities. Those studying for the AP Japanese
Language and Culture Exam will especially appreciate
the new third edition books, which show how the
series prepares students for the AP exam.
Adventures in Japanese is full of culturally related
activities—from learning Japanese songs to
understanding Japan’s educational system—that
enrich learning. A "Japanese Culture Corner" presents
projects that students research and share with
classmates, and a "Fun Corner" offers instructions for
Japanese crafts and games such as origami and
karuta. Volume 1 covers hiragana and katakana, and
by the end of Volume 4, students will have learned
340 kanji. See p. 16 for information on the
Adventures in Japanese multimedia companions.

The Kodansha
Kanji Learner’s
Dictionary,
2001 Edition
講談社漢英学習字典
Edited by Jack Halpern
This dictionary answers an urgent need for an easy-
to-use kanji reference. Small enough to be carried in a
briefcase, it is also extensive enough to satisfy
practical needs. Ninety-eight percent of the charac-
ters used in contemporary Japanese are included in
this volume. A unique character reference system
(called SKIP) uses patterns within kanji to allow
students to locate each character faster than ever.
Characters can also be located through any of four
other methods. Each entry includes concise core
definitions that provide an instant grasp of each
character’s fundamental meanings. Includes 2,230
main entry characters, approximately 41,000
meanings for 31,000 words. Kodansha, 2001,

The Imjin War
Japan’s Sixteenth-Century
Invasion of Korea and
Attempt to Conquer China
By Samuel Hawley
In May of 1592, nearly 350 years before the attack on
Pearl Harbor, Japanese dictator Toyotomi Hideyoshi
sent a 158,800-man army aboard 1,000 ships from
Kyushu to Pusan on Korea’s southern tip. His
objective: to conquer Korea, then China, and then the
whole of Asia. The Imjin War is the most compre-
hensive account ever published in English about this
important event, which is little known in the West. It
begins with a political and cultural background of
Korea, Japan, and China; discusses the diplomatic
breakdown that led to the war; describes every major
incident and battle from 1592 to 1598; and introduces
a fascinating cast of characters along the way:
Hideyoshi himself, Korean admiral Yi Sun-sin, Chi-
nese commander Zhao Chengxun, and kisaeng Chu

Challenged
Identities
North American
Missionaries in Korea,
1884–1934
By Elizabeth Underwood
Five early decades of North American missionary
work in Korea are revealed in Challenged Identities,
giving readers a glimpse into the profound struggle
for cultural and spiritual identity that often accom-
panied the Christian missionaries’ foray into unbap-
tized territory. Most missionaries could not make the
necessary leap from their own backgrounds to their
new home culture; a few did and came away from
the experience with a sharper perception of self,
society, and the sometimes problematic nature of
their work. Royal Asiatic Society–Korea Branch, 2004,

Integrated Korean
By Young-Mee Cho,
Hyo Sang Lee,
Carol Schulz, et al.
Ideal for: Beginning through high-advanced
Korean language learners at the college level.
This four-level series was developed collaboratively by
leading classroom teachers and linguists. All volumes
have been developed in accordance with performance-
based principles and methodology: they are learner-
centered, contextualize the material learned, and
integrate speaking, listening, reading, writing, and
culture. Grammar points are systematically introduced
with simple explanations and abundant examples,
exercises, and drills. Each situation/topic-based lesson
consists of two or three model dialogues, narration,
new words and expressions, pronunciation notes,
vocabulary notes, culture, grammar, task/function, and
English translation of dialogues. The workbooks
provide students with extensive practice activities
based on the skills learned from the main texts.
Integrated Korean is a project of the Korean Language

Japan relationship; from Korea’s gender divide to dating
and marriage customs; from folk traditions and family
arrangements to globalization and the "Korean Wave."

Learn 2,300 Chinese
Characters Through Their
214 Radicals
By James C. Whitlock, Jr.,
Kyong-ho So
Written especially for students of Korean who want a
deep understanding of hanja, this two-part book
offers a unique approach to learning and under-
standing Chinese characters and their related ety-
mology—through their radicals. Part I covers 2,300
characters and their 214 component radicals. Alpha-
betized by English, Korean, and number of strokes,
each entry includes the Korean word, corresponding
Chinese character, pinyin, a description of the
Chinese character by its radical, a reference to an
etymological note, an English translation of the
character, and the international number of the radical.
Notes provide a logical and memorable explanation of
all 1,800 standard hanja, and help provide a window
into the character’s meaning and history. Part II
contains a word list of over 10,000 separate Korean
words. Arranged alphabetically by Korean and Eng-
lish, each line includes not only the translation of the
Korean word in Chinese characters and English, but
also an English translation of the Chinese charac-
ters—thus condensing two dictionaries into one!

The Origin of Chingis Khan
Adapted by Paul Kahn
"Although it opens in the mythical past, The
Secret History is also a source of historical facts,
not only about the life and career of Chingis Khan,
but about the daily life, social structures, and
tribal customs of the people of Central Asia."
— Annotated Books Received
This adaptation of the oldest Mongolian text tells the
Mongols’ own version of the origin of their nation, the
life of Chingis Khan, and the creation of an empire
that stretched across Eurasia in the thirteenth
century. Adapted from Francis Woodman Cleaves’
erudite translation, it is presented here as a narrative
poem in colloquial English. An overview of medieval
Asia, maps, lineage charts, a glossary of proper

My Sister China
By Jaroslav Pru

sˇ ek
Available for the first time in English translation! My
Sister China is a memoir by the renowned scholar
Jaroslav Pru

sˇek, the first professor of Sinology at
Charles University in Prague, recording his stay in
China in the 1930s. Pru

sˇek was a leading specialist in
modern Chinese literature, and especially valuable in
this book are several chapters detailing his personal
encounters with prominent modern Chinese scholars,
writers, and poets Lu Xun, Bing Xin, Shen Congwen,
Zheng Zhenduo, and others. The book presents a rare
firsthand account from a Westerner who associated
with the educated classes and witnessed the literary
and social revolution that was taking place in China at
the time. It was written for the general public during
the war years, when Czechoslovakia was under Nazi
occupation. Between the lines of this unusual
memoir, messages of humanity and resistance
against war ideology can be clearly heard, bearing
witness to Pru

sˇek’s uncompromising stance during
the war and his personal courage in expressing it. The

offer a snapshot of some part of the health care
systems of either China or the United States. It also

Humanity and
Self-Cultivation
Essays in Confucian
Thought
By Tu Wei-ming
"A classic, a must-read for any serious student of
Confucianism." — China Review International
This first paperback edition of a renowned collection
of essays by scholar of Chinese history and philoso-
phy Tu Wei-ming includes a new introduction by
Robert Cummings Neville, Dean of the School of
Theology at Boston University, and a new preface by
the author. Through an intensive focus on the
Confucian process of self-cultivation, noted author
and teacher Tu Wei-ming aggressively explores the
philosophical ramifications of this fundamental tradi-
tion and shows how Confucian humanism is still
relevant to cultural competence, ethical intelligence,
and spiritual values in today’s world. The 12 essays in
this volume concisely illustrate the inherent spiritual
and ethical nature of Confucianism, one of the
world’s most influential systems of thought. Cheng &

Family
By Pa Chin,
Olga Lang (Introduction),
Sidney Shapiro
(Translator)
One of the best-known works by novelist Pa Chin (Ba
Jin), Family tells the story of the daily life and passions of
a family during the turmoil of early twentieth-century
China. First published in 1931, this modern classic
reflects Chinese society during a time of unprecedented
change. Drawn largely from Pa Chin’s own experiences,
Family depicts the Kao family compound, consisting of
four generations plus servants. It is essentially a picture
of the conflict between old China and the newtide rising
to destroy it. Family has been compared to Dreamof the
Red Chamber for its superb portrayal of the family life
and society of its time. A must for all introductory
courses in modern Chinese society and literature. Cheng
& Tsui, 1999, 4.25 x 7, 368pp.

Traditional Chinese
Stories
Themes and Variations
Edited by Y. W. Ma,
Joseph S. M. Lau
For centuries, the Chinese referred to their fiction as
xiaoshuo, etymologically meaning "roadside gossip"
or "small talk," and held it in relative disregard. Not
until the twentieth century was the Chinese story
internationally recognized as a beautiful and vital
expression of the Chinese spirit. The 61 carefully
chosen stories in this collection span the develop-
ment of that expression, from the Han dynasty (206
BCE–8 CE) to the early republican years of the
twentieth century. With tables listing each selection
in its proper chronology in the development of
Chinese literature and with extensive notes explain-
ing difficult allusions and their historical significance,
this compilation provides an excellent introduction to
a fascinating body of work for students of compara-
tive literature or Chinese culture. Cheng & Tsui, 1986,

The Butcher’s Wife
and Other Stories
By Ang Li,
Howard Goldblatt
(Translator)
"The Butcher’s Wife offers not a single evasion or
pretense about the reality and pervasiveness of
sexual oppression. Li Ang has written this book
with the dedication of a daughter and the
responsibility of a woman." — Alice Walker
Li Ang’s highly charged fiction has brought her
worldwide attention and established her reputation
as a writer on the cutting edge of Taiwan’s
contemporary literary scene. This collection begins
with the internationally acclaimed "The Butcher’s
Wife," a novella that provoked shock and outrage
when it first appeared in 1983. The shorter stories
that follow are erotic, thought-provoking, and
cautionary. Cheng & Tsui, 1994, 5.5 x 8.5, 246pp.

Please Don’t Call
Me Human
A Novel
By Wang Shuo,
Howard Goldblatt
(Translator)
"Unnervingly funny... wanders into the wonder-
fully wild territory of mythic exaggeration." — USA
Today
The Olympics is not just about athletics, but politics and
culture as well. In this work, contemporary fiction
writer Wang Shuo applies his genius for cultural
irreverence to this sacred global ritual. He imagines an
Olympics where nations compete not on the basis of
athletic prowess, but according to their citizens’
capacity for humiliation—and China is determined to
win at any cost. The plot unfolds into an alternately
bizarre and hilarious satire of nationalism, competitive
sport and the cult of celebrity. Banned in China for its
"rudeness" and "vulgarity," this mercilessly brutal satire
is filled with the kind of word play and outlandish antics
that have earned Wang Shuo, in the words of Stephen
King, his own "genre by itself—call it China noir." Cheng
& Tsui, 2003, 5.5 x 8.25, 304pp.

The True Story of
Ah Q
阿Q正传
By Lu Xun,
Yang Xianyi (Translator),
Gladys Yang (Translator)
We are now offering the Foreign Languages Press
bilingual edition of The True Story of Ah Q, which sets
Lu Xun’s original Chinese text side by side with Yang
Xianyi and Gladys Yang’s definitive English transla-
tion. This edition (ISBN 978-7-11902-693-0) replaces
our former edition (ISBN 978-0-91705-693-2), which
includes the English translation only.
Written in 1921 and set in the China of 1911 during
the old democratic revolution, this is the tragic story
of Ah Q, a long-suffering farm laborer who dreams of
revolution and ends up on the execution ground. The
novella brings to life the era’s sharp class contra-
dictions and essentially rural condition. Its simplicity
and directness of style, and the beauty of Lu Xun’s
language, place The True Story of Ah Q high among
literary works of the time for both content and style.

The Field of Life
and Death & Tales
of Hulan River
By Xiao Hong,
Howard Goldblatt
(Translator)
Xiao Hong is considered by many to be China’s first
feminist novelist. The Field of Life and Death (1936) is
an unflinching collection of vignettes set in the rural
China in which she grew up. Though it was initially
seen as an attack on Japanese imperialism, the
primary concern of this novel is the objective
portrayal of the lives of rural people brutalized by
poverty and war. Tales of Hulan River (1940) is Xiao
Hong’s famous wry and poignant account of a
Chinese village and the always difficult, sometimes
brief lives of its citizens. These reminiscences deftly
convey the deep and pervasive misogyny of Chinese
society at the time. This revised version of the
notable translations by Howard Goldblatt features Lu
Xun’s original preface (in translation), a new transla-
tor’s preface, and a revised introduction by Goldblatt.

Midnight
By Mao Tun
Since its publication in 1933, Midnight has enjoyed
immense popularity in China, and has become a
classic of realist fiction worldwide. Set in Shanghai,
Midnight follows the central figure Wu Sun-fu, an
industrial capitalist, and details the violence and
corruption in Nationalist China in the 1930s. The
novel depicts how Chinese industrialists caught in
this period of upheaval were hindered by feudal
forces and market chaos, and how they tried to save
themselves. Midnight is the most famous work by
Shen Yanbing (1896-1981), better known by the pen
name Mao Tun. He was a member of the young
intelligentsia that created a truly vernacular Chinese
literature in the early twentieth century, and later
worked as Mao Zedong’s secretary and Culture
Minister until 1964. Cheng & Tsui, 2000, 5.5 x 8.5,

A Dream of Red
Mansions
An Abridged Version
By Hsueh-chin Tsao,
Ngo Kao, Hsien-Yi Yang
(Translator),
Gladys Yang (Translator)
This abridged English edition of the masterpiece A
Dream of Red Mansions (also known as The Story of
the Stone ) remains faithful to the original Yang
Hsien-yi translation of Hong Lou Meng, generally
considered the greatest Chinese novel ever written.
This classic touchstone of vernacular Chinese litera-
ture, written in the mid-eighteenth century, narrates
the fall from glory of one of China’s great aristocratic
families. A Dream of Red Mansions was written by
Hsueh-chin Tsao (Cao Xueqin) during the reign of
Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty. Tsao wrote
the majority of the novel in adverse conditions during
a fierce power struggle for the throne. Ngo Kao, who
lived after Tsao, carried on the unfinished threads of
this epic work after the author’s death. The
un-abridged edition is currently unavailable. Cheng &
Tsui, 1996, 5.5 x 8.5, 499pp.

Up the Yangtze
Directed by Yung Chang
"Outstanding... gorgeously shot and as gripping
as an epic novel." — Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
The Yangtze is undergoing a truly astonishing
transformation wrought by the largest hydroelectric
project in history, the Three Gorges Dam. Canadian
documentary filmmaker Yung Chang returns to the
landscape of his grandfather’s youth to trace the
surreal life of a "farewell cruise" traversing the
gargantuan waterway. With a humanist gaze and wry
wit, Chang’s upstairs-downstairs approach beautifully
captures the microcosmic society of the luxury liner.

China: A Century of
Revolution
Directed by Sue Williams
A six-hour tour de force journey through the
tumultuous period from 1911–1997. First televised
on PBS, this award-winning documentary series
presents an astonishingly candid view with rare
archival footage, insightful historical commentary and
stunning eyewitness accounts from citizens who
struggled through China’s most decisive century.
"Part 1: China in Revolution" charts the country’s
most violent era, in which decades of civil war and
foreign invasions led to the bloody battle for power
between Mao Zedong and Chiang Kai-shek. "Part 2:
The Mao Years" examines the turbulent era of Mao’s
attempts to forge a "new China" from the war-
ravaged and poverty-stricken nation. Mao’s death
begins "Part 3: Born Under the Red Flag," which
follows Deng Xiaoping’s new leadership and China’s
transformation into an extraordinary hybrid of cen-
tralized communist politics and an ever-expanding
free market economy. Zeitgeist Video, 2007, Color,

"Powerful! Engrossing! Unsettlingly beautiful!"
— Kenneth Turan, L.A. Times
A striking new documentary on the work and world of
renowned artist Edward Burtynsky, internationally
acclaimed for his large-scale photographs of "manu-
factured landscapes"—quarries, recycling yards, fac-
tories, and mines. With breathtaking sequences, the
filmmakers also extend the narratives of Burtynsky’s
photographs, allowing us to meditate on our impact
on the planet and witness both the epicenters of
industrial endeavor in China and the dumping grounds
of its waste. Awarded Best Documentary Feature

Critics Association, Best Canadian Feature Film at the

Flying with Chinese
飞向中文
By Shuhan C. Wang, Carol Ann Dahlberg,
Chiachyi Chiu, Marisa Fang, Mei-Ju Hwang
Ideal for: Grades K-6 and heritage language
learners.
At last, an elementary Chinese textbook series for
American students that is as focused as it is fun!
Developed in accordance with the ACTFL National
Content Standards, Flying with Chinese is the first
K-6 series created by a team of Chinese language
experts and established professionals in the field of
K-8 world language education. The result is an
integrated, communicative approach, with oral and
literacy targets included and assessed throughout the
21-book series. Available exclusively through Cheng
& Tsui, Flying with Chinese is designed specifically
for use in mainstream schools, though it is easy to
accelerate for the heritage learning environment, too.
Special bundle prices are now available.
Organized structure
Flying with Chinese is clustered around themes of:
global citizenship, cultural heritage, and environmental
responsibility. Each volume introduces legends, real and
fictional characters in Chinese culture, and significant
Chinese customs and celebrations. The focus is on oral
skills in the earlier volumes, but the books and teacher
materials offer multiple channels for conveying the
fundamentals of written Chinese to young learners—
from Total Physical Response activities to the use of
Chinese language signs in the classroom. This
interwoven approach makes it possible for students to
acquire 30 characters per year in grades K-1, 60 per year
in grades 2-3, and between 90 and 130 per year in
grades 4-6.
Rich content
Textbook lessons center around stories specially
written for young readers, with engaging characters
depicted in universal contexts. (Follow Sun Wukong,
the Monkey King, as he brushes his teeth!) The
themes are connected with the elementary school
curriculum, allowing learners to acquire an under-
standing of Chinese culture via history, social studies,
geography, science, and health education.

The Way of
Chinese Characters
The Origins of 400
Essential Words
漢字之道
By Jianhsin Wu,
Chen Zheng (Illustrator),
Chen Tian (Illustrator)
"[T]he Way of Chinese Characters is by far the
best ‘context-learning’ teaching supplement on
the market. Its simplicity is brilliant; its accuracy is
scholarly without overwhelming the novice. The
pedagogical principles espoused in the Preface
are right on." — Scott A. Carpenter, Graduate School
of Computer and Information Sciences, Nova South-
eastern University, FL
Ideal for: Grades 7 and up; adult learners.
For non-native speakers of Chinese, learning to write
Chinese characters can be one of the most challen-
ging aspects of the language. Learners are often
asked to memorize characters by simply writing them
over and over again, without a full understanding of
their meanings.
The Way of Chinese Characters offers a more holistic
approach to character learning that is fun and
accessible, yet firmly grounded in academic research
on the origins of Chinese characters. Four hundred
essential Chinese characters are presented, each
with a concise introduction to its classification and
evolution. Illustrations of early writing forms help
learners visualize the characters’ evolution, and
cartoon drawings serve as helpful mnemonic
devices.
The Way of Chinese Characters is designed for
teachers and learners of Chinese at all levels,
especially those who are interested in the origins of
Chinese characters. The characters presented corre-
spond to the vocabulary introduced in Integrated
Chinese, Level 1 Part 1 (see pp.40-42), making The
Way of Chinese Characters a perfect character-
learning companion for students of Integrated Chi-
nese or any beginning Chinese course.
The book is bilingual, with character entries in
traditional and simplified characters with English.
Explanatory text is in traditional characters and
English; an appendix contains text in simplified
characters. Four useful character indexes—arranged
by lesson, pinyin, traditional stroke count, and
simplified stroke count—are also included. Cheng &
Tsui, 2007, 8.5 x 11, B/W illustrations, 298pp.

BuilderCards
The Lightning Path to
Mastering Vocabulary
By Song Jiang, Haidan
Wang
Ideal for: Grades 7 and up; adult learners.
Research on second-language acquisition has proven
that learning groups of associated words is the
fastest way to build vocabulary. Much more than a
set of flashcards, the BuilderCards are uniquely
designed to help students build their Chinese
vocabulary by understanding how groups of words
are related. Using a carefully sequenced order, these
cards build mnemonic connections that will help
learners recall definitions and interpret unfamiliar
words from theircontext.
For all beginning-level learners of Chinese, but
especially designed for students of Integrated Chi-
nese (see pp.40-42), Practical Chinese Reader (see p.
44), New Practical Chinese Reader (see p. 38),
Practical Audio-Visual Chinese, Hanyu for Beginning
Students (see p. 34), Chinese Primer, Interactions: A

Huanying
An Invitation to Chinese
欢迎:中学汉语课本
By Jiaying Howard, Lanting Xu
" ...this is a well-designed, well-written, informative,
interesting textbook with a high quality of scholar-
ship and accuracy." — Jean Yu, Hotchkiss School
Ideal for: Grades 9–12; also recommended for
grades 7–8.
Designed for use in secondary schools and developed
in accordance with ACTFL’s national content standards,
the Huanying series engages students in interactive
and integrated language practice through fun and
meaningful activities.
Developed by experts in curriculum design with solid
teaching experience in North America, Huanying con-
tinuously intertwines students’ learning experience with
the "5-Cs" of foreign language learning, as established
by the Standards for Foreign Language Learning in the
21st Century. By starting with a communicative
approach, and combining it with activities embedding
repetitive language practice in a meaningful context, the
authors have created a practical and learner-centered
experience for secondary school students.
Features
N Say "goodbye" to repetitive and boring language
drills! Huanying offers a variety of creative com-
municative activities for the classroom, including
informal interviews, presentations, and paired
games such as "find your lost twin," the spy game,
"adopt a pet," celebrity bingo, and more.
N Each volume covers one full year of instruction at
the secondary school level. Volume 1 introduces
approximately 500 characters. The series will
cover four years of instruction in four volumes.
N Textbooks and workbooks include drawings, maps,
tables, and pictures that engage students visually.
N Cultural notes help students understand Chinese
culture and make comparisons between Chinese
culture and their own.
N Learning goals at the beginning of each textbook
lesson outline a clear purpose for the unit.
N Self-assessment checklists at the end of each unit
give students a sense of accomplishment as they
monitor their own progress.
Textbook
The Volume 1 textbook is designed for learners who
have no prior knowledge of Chinese. It includes six
units, each with a specific communication theme,
learning objectives, five lessons, a unit review, and an
end-of-unit self-assessment. In Volume 1, the first few
lessons introduce the fundamentals of the spoken and
written language with guided practice. This book is in
simplified characters, with English and pinyin.
Traditional characters are included in vocabulary lists
and indexes, and an appendix contains dialogues and
texts in traditional characters.
Workbook
The student workbook contains a wealth of ready-to-
use activities that integrate listening, speaking, reading,
and writing. Activities progress from structured to
open-ended, encouraging students’ critical thinking.
Games such as vocabulary contests, bingo, and
crossword puzzles provide challenging and meaningful
learning activities. Finally, character-writing exercises
provide step-by-step guidance. Workbooks are divided
into two parts, one for each semester.
Teacher's Book
This bilingual (simplified characters and English) tea-
cher’s book contains transcripts of the workbook
listening passages, copies of all the student workbook
activities with answer keys, suggestions on facilitating
a learner-centered classroom, and quizzes and unit
tests (including answer keys).

AP, College, & Beyond
Chinese for Tomorrow
A New Five-Skilled Approach
走向未來: 新中文課程
By Wayne He, Dela Jiao, Qiuxia Shao,
Christopher M. Livaccari
Ideal for: High school, college, heritage learners,
and professional training programs in Chinese,
especially those focusing on computer literacy
and keyboarding in Chinese.
In this groundbreaking new course, computer input
of Chinese characters ("Computer Chinese") is utilized
as both a language learning tool and a fifth language
skill, to make the process of learning Chinese more
efficient, effective, and rewarding.
Typing Chinese involves entering pinyin, the romanized
sounds for Chinese syllables, and then selecting the
correct character. Learning accurate pinyin is crucial to
speaking Chinese well, and in Chinese for Tomorrow,
pinyin keyboarding forms the basis of a new learning
method that lets learners use the language in a practical
and engaging way very early on in their studies.
The authors’ extensive field testing at New York
University and elsewhere indicates that students using
the Computer Chinese method learn Chinese charac-
ters more quickly, have better retention, and write
more effective compositions than students learning by
traditional methods. The Computer Chinese method is
additionally useful for students who will take the new
AP Chinese test, which requires computer interaction.
The Volume 1 Textbook and its companion Grammar
Book are designed to cover one year of study at the
high school or college level, when used together as
part of a comprehensive course covering listening,
speaking, reading, writing, and computer input. In the
textbook, concise explanations of language points help
students grasp and use the language immediately as
they encounter new words and phrases. The grammar
book uses detailed explanations to help students gain a
deeper knowledge and analytical understanding of the
grammatical, phonological, and pragmatic systems of
the language. This two-pronged approach to language
learning frees students to focus on the most natural,
relevant and interesting language in the textbook, while
providing a structured, step-by-step program for
mastering grammar in the grammar book.
Cheng & Tsui, 2007-2009, B/W illustrations and photos.
Features
N Chinese for Tomorrow treats computer input and
handwriting instruction as complementary modes.
The first year of the course focuses on computer
input, while handwriting is introduced gradually with
firmer emphasis in the second and third years.
N Practice exercises are incorporated in the textbooks.
N Textbooks feature accelerated vocabulary sequen-
cing, so students can quickly build their vocabulary.
N A separate Companion Grammar Book offers
systematic explanations of the basic grammatical
principles of Mandarin Chinese.
N The bilingual Teacher’s Manual contains curriculum
planning guidelines, sample lesson plans, additional
classroom activities for each lesson, sample
quizzes, and answer keys for textbook exercises.
N Textbooks are available in traditional or simplified
character editions, and grammar books include both
traditional and simplified characters on facing pages.
N A "Chinese Customs and Culture" section in each
textbook lesson covers contemporary society, the
arts, literature, travel, Chinese traditions, and more.

"This new edition of Integrated Chinese is an
outstanding achievement. Complete with inter-
esting cultural notes, useful authentic materials,
and a wealth of interactive exercises, the authors
have outdone themselves AGAIN!"
— Dr. Zoe Wu, Chinese Language Program, Pasadena
City College
Ideal for: High school AP courses, college, and
adult learners.
Cheng & Tsui’s best-loved Chinese textbook series is
new, revised, and better than ever! Integrated
Chinese is already the leading introductory Chinese
textbook at colleges and universities around the
world. The third edition has been significantly
updated to meet the needs of today’s students with a
full-color design, fewer lessons in Level 1 to allow for
more flexible pacing, more communicative activities,
up-to-date vocabulary, expanded cultural notes, an
exciting new storyline linking all the dialogues and
readings, and more review sections.
This series provides coordinated practice in the four
skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
Throughout the series, Integrated Chinese builds on
the three modes of communication – interpretive,
interpersonal, and presentational – and ACTFL’s
"5-Cs"—Communication, Culture, Connections, Com-
parisons, and Communities – to build proficiency in
using the Chinese language in a variety of real-life
situations. With its emphasis on practicing a broad
range of written and verbal communication skills and
building cultural understanding, Integrated Chinese is
ideally suited for students who want a comprehen-
sive grounding in the Chinese language.
The Integrated Chinese series is a two-year course
that includes textbooks, workbooks, character work-
books, audio CDs, multimedia resources, and tea-
cher’s handbooks. Materials are available in both
simplified and traditional character versions. Multi-
media resources and teacher’s handbooks will be
soon available in 2009.
What’s New in the Third Edition?
N An all-new, four-color design to facilitate student
learning.
N Fewer lessons in Level 1 (20) to allow for more
flexible pacing.
N More task-based, communicative language appli-
cations and exercises in both the textbook and
the workbook.
N A reorganization of the lessons so that each of the
dialogues or readings is followed by its own
Vocabulary, Grammar, and Language Practice
sections.
N An exciting new storyline that links all the
dialogues and readings.

Yea-fen Chen, Nyan-Ping Bi, Xiaojun Wang,
Yaohua Shi
Ideal for: High school, AP courses, college, and
adult learners.
The expanded second edition of this bestselling series
is still available for order. With its holistic, integrated
focus on the four language skills of listening, speaking,
reading, and writing, Integrated Chinese teaches all the
basics beginning and intermediate students need to
function in Chinese. The series helps students under-
stand how the Chinese language works grammatically,
and how to use Chinese in real life.
Level 1 Part 1 begins the first year of study in Chinese,
introducing 350 characters. Students cover the basics
quickly, with simple, graded activities on essential
topics such as greetings, dates and time, shopping, and
family. Pinyin texts accompany Chinese characters
throughout, allowing students to focus on both proper
pronunciation and character recognition.
Level 1 Part 2 continues the first year of study and
introduces 350 more characters. Learners build solid
communicative skills as they discuss everyday topics
such as food, sports, travel, going to a party, and
renting an apartment. Pinyin is presented at the end
of each lesson, so students can begin reading
characters without relying solely on pinyin.
Level 2 spans the entire second year of Chinese study,
introducing 600 additional characters over two seme-
sters. Topics such as campus and family life, social
issues, and aspects of Chinese culture will be
presented. A focus on important linguistic structures
helps expand learners’ understanding of Chinese
grammar. Level 2 gradually introduces the more formal
written-style expressions, often used in news broad-
casts and formal speeches. See p. 40-41 for information
about the new, third edition and materials to accompany
the Integrated Chinese series. Cheng & Tsui,
1997-2006, B/W illustrations.

mately 58 characters per lesson over 20 lessons.

Success with
Chinese
ACommunicative Approach
for Beginners, Levels 1 &2
By De-an Wu Swihart,
Irene Liu, Judy Z. Mu,
Cong Meng
". . the most needed communicative abilities and
situations most likely encountered in China . . .
[ Success withChinese] is so skillfully and practically
structured that students are able to learn basic
Chinese language skills with flexibility." — Journal of
the Chinese Language Teachers Association
Ideal for: Beginning-level students preparing for
work or study in China.
English speakers learn to converse in Chinese faster
than they learn to read and write it. Success with
Chinese’s special teaching method focuses on that
essential fact by coordinating Listening & Speaking and
Reading & Writing separately. This two-part structure
allows for flexibility in designing the instruction and
learning process, and empowers students to learn more
effectively by first concentrating on listening and
speaking, and then reading and writing at a slower pace.
Equally effective for classroom use or for independent
study, Success with Chinese’s lessons help build a solid
foundation by using daily experiences as practical
opportunities for learning and mastering the basics of
Chinese. In the Listening & Speaking volumes, each
lesson includes key expressions and sample conversa-
tions, pronunciation exercises, notes on grammar,
sentence pattern drills, and communicative exercises.
The Reading & Writing volumes help students to learn
radicals, and simple characters in restaurant menus,
signs, and other materials. Instead of focusing on
character memorization, Success with Chinese teaches
critical reading strategies that help students apply their
knowledge of characters to the general meaning of a
phrase. Students also learn how to type Chinese on a
computer using pinyin, and to write by hand the most
essential characters they need to fill out forms, leave
messages, and communicate basic needs. Cheng
& Tsui, 2005–2007.

Classical Chinese
A Functional Approach
文言章句
By Kai Li, James Erwin
Dew
"This textbook provides readers with a solid
foundation for learning classical Chinese as well
as a bridge between classical Chinese and
modern Chinese...students will not only learn
Classical Chinese words and grammar structures,
but also get acquainted with the values and
philosophies of Chinese tradition." — Dr. Yu Feng,
Director of the Chinese Language Program, Brandeis
University
Ideal for: Advanced college students.
Classical Chinese: A Functional Approach is a
groundbreaking new textbook by expert teachers
that makes classical Chinese study more manage-
able, efficient, and rewarding from the start by using
an innovative "functional" approach.
In Classical Chinese, each lesson is built around a
selection of related grammatical function words and the
syntactic structures defined by these words. Within
this organizational structure, brief excerpts from the
most well-known classical sources are presented and
explained in detail. This fine-grained, focused approach
enables students to gain a solid footing in reading
classical Chinese while mastering the nuances of its
grammar and vocabulary.
This comprehensive and accessible one-year intro-
duction to classical Chinese is "functional" in multiple
ways: as students master the grammatical function
words that are so vital to understanding classical
Chinese syntax, they also learn the skills to apply
their new knowledge to every Chinese text they
encounter. Cheng & Tsui, 2008, 8.5 x 11, 300pp.
Features
N Focuses on key function words with carefully
selected excerpts from classical sources.
N Presents clear, bilingual explanations, followed by
20 to 30 example sentences and longer excerpts
for additional reading practice accompanied by
modern Chinese translations.
N Includes an index alphabetized by pinyin of the
nearly 2,000 vocabulary words from the text.
N In simplified characters with an index of traditional
character equivalents.

As-salaam Alaykum!
Beginning Modern Standard Arabic
! ﺍ ﻟ ﺴ
ّ
ﻼ ﻡ ﻋ ﻠ ﻴ ﲂ
By Mahmoud N. Hussein, Nawf Abou-Dib
Ideal for: Grades 7–12; heritage learners.
As-salaam Alaykum! (Greetings!) is an exciting new
series for beginning middle- and high-school Arabic
learners. Volume 1 takes students step by step into
Modern Standard Arabic—the language of Arabic
media, modern literature, and education.
In recent years, Arabic has become one of the most
sought-after critical languages. But for non-native
students, the structure of written Arabic, its alphabet,
and pronunciation can be intimidating. As-salaam
Alaykum! meets the need for a Modern Standard
Arabic series that combines a comprehensive
language-learning curriculum with activities and
cultural notes to make learning fun.
This series’s holistic, applied approach begins with
letter-by-letter alphabet acquisition and gradually
incorporates everyday, practical vocabulary and
grammar throughout. As-salaam Alaykum! makes the
challenge of learning to read and write in a right-to-
left script fun. To complement the textbook, a
student workbook also includes communicative
exercises with dozens of crossword puzzles and
word searches that offer realistic and rewarding
goals. The accompanying audio CD guides students
to standard Arabic pronunciation.
The topics in Level 1 include introductions, telling time,
expressing feelings and preferences, going to the
market and the zoo, school subjects and supplies, going
on vacation, and the geographical and historical back-
grounds of Arabic countries.
In accordance with the National Standards "5-Cs"—
communication, cultures, connections, comparisons,
and communities—As-salaam Alaykum! fulfills Arabic
language learning needs for the 21st century.
Features
N In lieu of romanization, each new vocabulary word
is associated with an image to reinforce acquisi-
tion through visual recognition.
N Units include Introductions, Telling Time, Voyages
through Arabic Countries, Gym Class, Going on
Vacation, Around Town, and more.
N Includes group activities and partner exercises for
interactive and collaborative learning.
N A Teacher’s Manual supplies quizzes and tests,
answer keys, resources, and instruction notes.
About the Series
As-salaam Alaykum! is a projected two-volume
series, designed to take beginning-level students
through two years of Modern Standard Arabic. Each
volume includes a textbook, student workbook, audio
CD, and teacher’s handbook.
Dr. Mahmoud Hussein and Nawf Abou-Dib have
been teaching Arabic, French, and World History for
over 20 years, and together they have been field-
testing this material in the Dearborn, Michigan, public
schools, and at Oakland University, where Arabic has
been offered as a world language for 10 years.
Cheng & Tsui is proud to introduce this new text for
the Arabic language in Summer 2009. Please contact
us at mktg@cheng-tsui.com to place your name on
the waiting list for sample materials. Cheng & Tsui,
8.5 x 11, B/W illustrations, 2009.

Cheng & Tsui Professional Development Award
Who We Are and What We Do
Cheng & Tsui is an independent publisher and distributor
of English and multilingual educational materials about
Asia. For over twenty-fve years, we have been “Bringing
Asia to the World”
TM
with a wide range of Asia-related
products: language textbooks, literature in translation,
scholarly works, curriculum support materials, computer
software, flms, and educational games and tools that
make cultural learning fun for all age groups.
We supply materials from around the world in order to
ofer the most efective and innovative bilingual products
that make learning Asian languages and cultures reward-
ing and enjoyable. We aim to enrich people’s lives by sup-
porting their exploration of Asia’s many contributions to
the felds of philosophy, business, education, and the arts.
Mission Statement
We are dedicated to supporting the feld of Asian stud-
ies with quality publications, working closely with our
authors to create their ground-breaking and exciting
materials even better, and then making these materials
accessible to a wide audience.
In keeping with our mission, we publish not only lan-
guage textbooks for the K-12 and university levels, but
also literary classics and other specialized materials
that might not fnd a home elsewhere.
While we have in the past dealt mostly with Chinese and
Japanese materials, we have expanded in recent years to
include the languages and cultures of Korea, Indonesia,
Thailand, Vietnam, and Malaysia, and are broadening our
scope to include South Asia, Central Asia, and West Asia.
To us, there is nothing more important than the students,
teachers, readers, and writers whom we serve. We want
to know what our customers need, and we listen to their
thoughts and suggestions. Good communication is at the
heart of our philosophy. We believe that understanding
among diferent cultures requires the ability to speak to
each other both linguistically and culturally.
In our local community, we work together with organiza-
tions that increase awareness of Asia in the schools and
in the community. In a world where political and social
interactions among nations continue to increase, Cheng &
Tsui is committed to promoting deeper understanding of
Asia through our partnerships and our works.
About Us
As part of its mission to expand and enrich the quality of Asian-language teaching in the U.S., Cheng &
Tsui Company funds Professional Development Awards to enhance the knowledge and skills of teachers
of Chinese and Japanese, especially new teachers in the feld. The award is given to support the attendance
of pre-collegiate and collegiate teacher-training workshops and seminars at the local, national, or
international level which new teachers otherwise would be unable to attend.

So Your School is Launching an Asian-Language Program...
FOREIGN LANGUAGE DEPARTMENTS are becom-
ing increasingly interested in Asian languages such
as Japanese and Chinese, but these languages are
distinctly diferent from more traditional language
oferings. As such, they need to be introduced
and developed in a slightly diferent way. To help
shed some light on ways to build success into new
Asian-language programs, Cheng & Tsui Company
talked with Jessica Lee Haxhi, a veteran K-5 Japanese
teacher based in Connecticut, and Charlotte Mason,
the co-founder of one of the frst junior high Chinese
programs in the country. These are some of their
suggestions:
Get Buy-In from Everybody.
Or if not everybody, then at least good representation
and support from all the parties involved—students,
parents, administration, teachers, even cultural and
community groups—at the very beginning of your
new Asian-language program.
Decide How Much They Need to Read.
The complexity of Japanese and Chinese written
characters poses a challenge for those who would
teach them to non-native speakers. “You can’t just
write what you say on the blackboard and expect
students to understand it, if they don’t know the char-
acters,” says Haxhi. The founder of any Asian-language
program needs to decide on the basic philosophy
and teaching strategies to deal with the challenge.
Will you use romanization (romaji for Japanese, pinyin
for Chinese)? How many characters do you want the
students to have learned by the end of the term, the
year, the program? Or do you want to focus on speak-
ing and listening before reading and writing? Talk to
education experts in the language and decide these
questions early on.
Hire Trained, Enthusiastic Teachers.
Make every efort to rely on professional teachers, not
parents or other untrained native speakers. Mason
points out that some teachers may need additional
professional development to help build pedagogi-
cal skills suited to teaching in a Western classroom.
You will also want to look for teachers who have
confdence in students’ abilities to learn the language,
and who can express that belief. “Too often, Chinese
teachers do not really believe that their American
students can learn Chinese,” says Mason. “This idea is
then unconsciously conveyed to the students.”
Plan for Continuity.
For those just starting an Asian-language program,
this may feel like the cart before the horse. But
program proponents should be aware of what other
learning opportunities and resources are available for
future levels of language learning. Where will students
go at the end of your program? What do they need to
know to be able to move up? This can be a problem
for many students going from high school to college-
level study, says Haxhi, where requirements for written
profciency may be stricter than they are used to. With
both the Chinese and Japanese languages head-
ing toward AP status, the question of preparedness
and planning takes on fresh urgency for the more
advanced students in your program.
Teachers and program administrators can help by
being prepared and knowing which other language
programs your students may feed into. Work with
parents and students to be ready, by helping to
locate supplemental study materials, language tutors,
and online resources. Remember to look at cultural
immersion programs as additional language study
opportunities.
Be Your Own Best Advocate.
You may have the most brilliant new language
program in the state, but no one is going to know or
care unless you put your program out in the public
eye. That starts even before classes do. “Don’t just
add the course to the school catalog and wait,” says
Mason; instead, advertise the course among students,
and work with administration and teachers to include
Asian cultures and histories in other programs.
Be proud of the students and optimistic about the
possibilities (without going overboard in your claims),
and be prepared to work regularly at your promotions
and advocacy. In an excellent article for the Japan
Foundation’s Breeze, Haxhi points out that advocacy
comes in two stages: start-up and ongoing. “Many of
us thought that once our programs were established
and the students were happy, we could focus purely
on our teaching,” she writes. “But administrators
change, parents and students are new every year, and
budgets fuctuate with the economy. Challenges to
language programs can come at any time; only con-
sistent, long-term advocacy can help them to survive.”
