For students, businesspeople, or anyone planning to travel to China, this is a multimedia presentation of the diversity of modern China in the context of its traditional roots. As both an integrated curriculum and virtual introduction, this new CD-ROM combines imagery, music and ...the spoken language with text and narrative that are grounded in the latest scholarship. Traversing from map to linked image, from video footage to a summoned explanation, from glossary to spoken pronunciation, the user's journey of knowledge is quickly underway. The CD-ROM even logs the progress. Six Thematic Modules collectively incorporate the perspectives of economics, politics, history, sociology, literature, the visual and performing arts, anthropology, religion and education. Users can also opt to use the program's Three Pathways , a more traditional, disciplinary approach to learning about China. Or it is possible find topics of interest directly, using the Search Mode to explore this presentation of contemporary Chinese culture.
