Abstract:

Pan and Kadar's exciting research compares historical and contemporary Chinese
(im)polite communication norms and maps the similarities and differences
between them. Considering the importance of China on the world stage,
understanding Chinese politeness norms is pivotal, to both experts of
communication studies and those who have interactions with the Chinese
community.

'This is an impressive book which is intended for both researchers in the
Chinese language and also for non-Chinese scholars. There is a wealth of
examples to illustrate the authors' argument and the book brings great insight
into current and historical politeness, but it also forces readers to consider
the way that status and deference play a role in politeness and impoliteness
in other languages such as English.'; - Professor Sara Mills, Sheffield Hallam
University, UK
