For students, businesspeople, or anyone planning to travel to China, here is 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: unity in diversity; views of time and space; the individual and the collectivity; adapting to a changing world; shaping conformity; and, dissent political culture. Users can also opt to use the program's Three Pathways, a more traditional, disciplinary approach to learning about China: life and society economy, power, and politics Chinese perspectives or find topics of interest directly, using the search mode. Whichever mode of access you choose, a rich experience of contemporary Chinese culture awaits. Minimum system requirements are: PC having Windows95 Pentium 100, 32 MB RAM, 16-bit color display, 2X CD-ROM or Macintosh having System 7.5 68040 processor, 32 MB RAM, 16-bit color display, 2X CD-ROM.
