The temporal coverage has been expanded to include the Republican period; sections on non-verbal salutations, weights and measures, money, and furniture have been added; the chapters on language, etymology; people, geography; chronology; warfare, leisbu, food, and the Chinese world order have been thoroughly revised; and the subject index has been enlarged to include 1,500 technical terms.
