With 29,000 entries and 100,000 phrases, this is the largest and most comprehensive Chinese characters dictionary with English annotations or explanations, covering both social sciences and natural sciences. The most impressive feature of this dictionary is that readers can look up many rare Chinese characters not easily found in comparable dictionaries. The other important feature is that it provides many examples to illustrate the meanings and uses of the Chinese characters and set phrases with clear and accurate English translations.

The entries are arranged in pinyin order, with both simplified and complex spellings wherever applicable, followed by Chinese definitions and English translations, and in many cases, by examples of sentences or phrases. There are four easy ways to find a Chinese character in the dictionary: by syllables, pinyin, radicals, and strokes.

A national book award winner, this dictionary is an indispensable and worthy reference tool for individuals and organizations engaged in Asian or Chinese studies. Instruction: The following introduction to this book is in Chinese.
