Abstract:

"Cultural Chinese: Readings in Art, Literature, and History" is an advanced
language textbook with a new approach to cultural integration and immersion.
In this unique book, culture becomes the very core of language learning,
transitioning its role from context to text.

This textbook is ideal for courses in advanced Chinese and Chinese culture.
Third- and fourth-year students and instructors will find themselves deeply
immersed in the very fabric of Chinese culture that governs personal behavior
and directs social dynamics.

Features:

-Each of nine lessons features a distinctive topic of Chinese culture that
serves as a portal to Chinese perceptions and perspectives.

-Main text of each lesson begins with a brief introduction and is further
illustrated with two historical or mythological stories that inform Chinese
values and attitudes.

-Additional mini-stories challenge students' abilities of cultural interpretation.

-Includes a total of twenty-seven stories familiar to every educated Chinese
person that will prepare students for meaningful communication and
understanding.

-Each lesson includes more than ten sections of exercises intertwined with
culture, including vocabulary and idioms, historical information, linguistic
points, translation exercises, and online research required for debate,
composition, and storytelling.
