SINOLOGY

INTRODUCTION TO RESEARCH IN CHINESE SOURCE MATERIALS
Alvin P. Cohen
This new-to-the-market book is a thorough guide for pursuing basic research in Chinese sources.

Designed to serve as an entry into the wealth of information contained in Chinese sources, it provides the necessary tools and information to enable you to initiate research in primary and secondary texts on almost any topic in the humanities and social sciences. Already field tested as a course text at UC Berkley, U of Pennysylvania and the U of Massachusetts at Amherst.
"This volume will be a constant companion on the shelf of every student of Chinese culture, and it will become the friend of every reference librarian." Joseph R. Allen, Univ. of Minnesota.
