Synopsis:

What weapon would a Daoist priest use to kill a demon? How do ghosts repay kindness? These fascinating questions are contained in twelve short readings in traditional Chinese mythology that highlight the special role of ghosts, fox spirits, demons, and ancestor worship as key components of learning and understanding Chinese culture.

Here are the stories and tales that make up the Chinese ghost world which have been told and retold for centuries. These readings offer the intermediate to advanced Chinese language learner with additional cultural material. With more and more people learning Chinese, conventional textbooks only go so far. The five titles in the Read About China series each emphasize a particular aspect of Chinese history, society, and culture. By utilizing readings, translations, new vocabulary, comprehension questions, and follow-up, this impressive series has appeal to students, teachers, and self-learners. It can be used in class or as a stand-alone language component.

All titles in the Read About China series are fully compliant with the HSK Chinese language proficiency examination, and are also suitable for those readers at or near the Advance Placement level for Chinese.

The Commercial Press is China's oldest publishing company, founded in 1897.
