Abstract:

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

'This is an impressive book which is intended for both researchers in theChinese language and also for non-Chinese scholars. There is a wealth ofexamples to illustrate the authors' argument and the book brings great insightinto current and historical politeness, but it also forces readers to considerthe way that status and deference play a role in politeness and impolitenessin other languages such as English.'; - Professor Sara Mills, Sheffield HallamUniversity, UK
