Author: Wm C Hannas
Publisher: Honolulu : University of Hawaiì Press, ©1997.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : State or province government publication : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
With the advent of computers and the rise of East Asian economies, the complicated character-based writing systems of East Asia have reached a stage of crisis that may be described as truly millennial in scope and implications. In what is perhaps the most wide-ranging critique of the sinographic script ever written, William C. Hannas assesses the usefulness of Chinese character-based writing in East Asia today.
