Speaking of Chinese

Speaking of Chinese - Raymond Chang, Margaret Scrogin Chang A fun and breezy survey of some of the aspects of the Chinese language. Deals about half-and-half with language development and the culture surrounding language. The comparisons between China and the West were sometimes a bit facile and unfair to the latter, but then again, I expect a little chauvinism from a book dedicated to singing the praises of a certain language and culture.
