Editorial Review

Product Description
Webster's edition of this classic is organized to expose the reader to a maximum number of synonyms and antonyms for difficult and often ambiguous English words that are encountered in other works of literature, conversation, or academic examinations. Extremely rare or idiosyncratic words and expressions are given lower priority in the notes compared to words which are ¿difficult, and often encountered¿ in examinations. Rather than supply a single synonym, many areprovided for a variety of meanings, allowing readers to better grasp the ambiguity of the English language, and avoid using the notes as a pure crutch. Having the reader decipher a word's meaning within context serves to improve vocabulary retention and understanding. Each page covers words not already highlighted on previous pages. If a difficult word is not noted on a page, chances are that it has been highlighted on a previous page. A more complete thesaurus is supplied at the end of the book; synonyms and antonyms are extracted from Webster's Online Dictionary.

4-0 out of 5 stars fascinating
Written almost 90 years ago, this book is a fascinating account of America.The author suggests that if Americans called its presidents "Emperor" it would be much more respectful and also give a title that could be used after retirement from office. Author questions why Americans do anything for an education but then are not given any religious or moral code along with the education. Comments about why there should be an international congress called so once and for all the world could decide the one way to dress are wonderfully naive. ... Read more

Excerpt: Guo Songtao (simplified Chinese: ; traditional Chinese: ; pinyin: Guō Sōngtāo; Wade-Giles: Kuo Sung-t'ao; 11 April 1818 - 18 July 1891) was a Chinese diplomat and statesman during the Qing dynasty. Guo was born in Xiangyin, Hunan in 1818. As a young man, Guo studied at the Yuelu Academy in Changsha, where befriended Zeng Guofan. In 1847, Guo was awarded the highest degree in the imperial exams and soon afterwards he became a bachelor in the Hanlin Academy. In 1853, he was called to assist Zeng Guofan suppressing the Taiping Rebellion in their native province of Hunan. During the suppression of the Taipings Rebellion, Guo distinguished himself as a prominent advocate of the local likin tax as a means of financing the campaigns. He later also assisted Li Hongzhang's Huai Army in their campaigns against rebels in the Anhui province. Guo became an important member of China's Self-Strengthening Movement in the 1860s and 70s and distinguished himself for his advocacy of a moderate and peaceful foreign policy. Guo became the first Qing minister to be stationed in a western country. He served as an ambassador to England and France from 1877 through 1879 as part of England's demands after the Margary Affair to have a Chinese Ambassador in England. In July 1877 while serving as Chinese Ambassador to Britain, Guo led an entourage of legation officials on a visit to the Ipswich engineering works of Ransomes and Rapier to see the manufacture of steam locomotives, railway equipment and other engineering products. He travelled from London to Ipswich by train and expressed his deep admiration for Britain...More: http://booksllc.net/?id=7831172 ... Read more

Product Description
Wu Tingfang, an important figure in the political life of the late Qing and early republic, was an innovator in pioneering reforms in China's government and political system. He was the first Chinese to become a barrister, and then a Legislative Councillor, in Hong Kong. In 1882, Wu began a lengthy association with Li Hongzhang. Besides serving as China's Minister to the United States and other countries, he sought to implement reforms in law, diplomacy and administration. In 1911, he was instrumental in negotiating the abdication of the Qing Emperor and served briefly as Minister of Justice in the first republican cabinet. His later years were marked by his continued support for Sun Yat-sen and the republic's constitutional principles. This biography provides a comprehensive review of Wu's life as an active politician and a reformist during the turn of the century, and sheds considerable light on a crucial period in Chinese history. ...

Product Description
CD-ROM Edition. Not a DVD, not an audio CD, no illustrations. Produced in a Microsoft Compatible Format for reading, printing or research.Of all nations in the world, America is the most interesting to the Chinese. A handful of people left England to explore this country: gradually their number increased, and, in course of time, emigrants from other lands swelled the population. They were governed by officials from the home of the first settlers, but when it appeared to them that they were being treated unjustly, they rebelled and declared war against their rulers, the strongest nation on the face of the earth. After seven years of strenuous, perilous, and bloody warfare, during which thousands of lives were sacrificed on both sides, the younger race shook off the yoke of the older, and England was compelled to recognize the independence of the American States. Since then, in the comparatively short space of one hundred and thirty years, those revolutionists and their descendants, have not only made the commonwealth the richest in the world, but have founded a nation whose word now carries weight with all the other great powers. ...
