Chinese-English Dictionary of Contemporary UsageBook - 1977
This volume of more than 20,000 terms is intended as an aid to the reading of newspapers, periodicals, and other materials published in the People's Republic. It assumes that the user will already have acquired a foundation in "traditional" Chinese; it is not, therefore, a complete dictionary. Instead, by concentrating on new terms and expressions not easily found translated or explained elsewhere, it should be a valuable supplement to the older, standard Chinese-English dictionaries.
