This vocabulary guide contains all 5000 HSK vocabularies grouped by level starting from HSK 1 and finishing with HSK 6. The vocabularies are based on the changes from 2012 and all come with Pinyin and English translation. If you are just starting out preparing for an HSK test, this book is ideal to slowly and step by step build the vocabulary you need to successfully pass whatever level it is you are aiming for. Shortly before the test, the book can again be very helpful in acting as a checklist to see which words haven't been learned yet or need to be studied again. As common with most vocabulary books, it's possible to study from Chinese to English as well as English to Chinese. Chinese to English provides you with the opportunity to make quick progress in areas like listening and reading. English to Chinese on the other hand allows you to practice your writing and also has positive effects on your speaking skills. To successfully pass any of the 6 HSK levels there are further topics for you to consider like grammar or listening which are not covered in this book. This book concentrates on helping you to build the foundation that allows you to then accelerate further learning in courses, with mock exams or whatever other form of studying works best for you. Good luck!

All Chinese characters are combinations of a set number of components, called "radicals." Standard text books teach vocabulary based on conversations, such as introducing oneself or going shopping. While this leads to quick progress for spoken Chinese, it slows student's character recognition down. This book reverses this process, by teaching characters the way they should be taught: Characters are grouped by radicals and related characters are introduced together. Combined with examples, pinyin, graphics explaining the historic roots and HSK levels clearly marked, this is the book you need to quickly improve character recognition in preparation for HSK exam levels 1, 2 or 3.

China's Coming War with Asia


Author: Jonathan Holslag

China?s ambition is to rise peacefully. Avoiding fierce conflicts with its Asian neighbors is essential to this goal. Jonathan Holslag makes a brilliant case for the geopolitical dilemma facing the rising China, and his argument that China will likely enter into major conflict with Asia is compelling and thoughtful. Both Chinese experts and decision-makers will find this book illuminating reading. Asia is set for another great power war. As China?s influence spreads beyond its territorial borders and its global aspirations gain momentum, so tensions with its neighbors are reaching breaking point. In this clear-sighted book, Jonathan Holslag debunks the myth of China?s peaceful rise, arguing instead that China?s policy of shrewd intransigence towards other Asian countries will inevitably result in serious conflict. China?s ambitions are not malicious. But what China wants ? namely to maximize its security and prosperity ? will lead to a huge power imbalance, where China towers above her neighbors, impels them into unequal partnerships, and is increasingly able to seize disputed territory. At present, China?s focused and uncompromising pursuit of its own interests is bearing fruit. Many of China?s neighbors are still too weak to counter Beijing?s influence, and China has ably exploited divisions between them to divide and rule. But several regional powers are now joining forces to stop China. With the PRC unlikely to back down and nationalism riding high, China?s coming war with Asia is already in the making.

It can be used alongside (or after, or even before) a course in the Chinese language. All characters are simplified (as in mainland China) but traditional characters are also given, when available. Key features: Specially designed pictures and stories are used in a structured way to make the learning process more enjoyable and effective, reducing the need for rote learning to the absolute minimum. The emphasis throughout is on learning and remembering the meanings and pronunciations of the characters. Tips are also included on learning techniques and how to avoid common problems. Characters are introduced in a logical sequence, which also gives priority to learning the most common characters first. Modern simplified characters are used, with pronunciations given in pinyin. Key information is given for each character, including radical, stroke–count, traditional form, compounds, and guidance on writing the character. This is a practical guide with a clear, concise and appealing layout, and it is well–indexed with easy look–up methods.

The Roman Book

What was a Roman book? How did it differ from modern books? How were Roman books composed, published and distributed during the high period of Roman literature that encompassed, among others, Virgil, Horace, Ovid, Martial, Pliny and Tacitus? What was the ‘scribal art’ of the time? What was the role of bookshops and libraries? The publishing of Roman books has often been misrepresented by false analogies with contemporary publishing. This wide-ranging study re-examines, by appeal to what Roman authors themselves tell us, both the raw material and the aesthetic criteria of the Roman book, and shows how slavery was the ‘enabling infrastructure’ of literature. Roman publishing is placed firmly in the context of a society where the spoken still ranked above the written, helping to explain how some books and authors became politically dangerous and how the Roman book could be both an elite cultural icon and a contributor to Rome’s popular culture through the mass medium of the theatre.
