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.

reference librarian." Joseph R. Allen, Univ. of Minnesota.
