This translation is made from the tenth edition of the Chinese book issued by the New Age Publishing Company with some of the errors of earlier editions corrected. In view of the prominent and influential position which The Three Principles of the People holds in the Chinese Nationalist movement and because of the difficulty involved in making passages for an abridged edition, Mr. Price has rendered a complete translation. The translation is faithful to the original and yet clear to the English reader. It will be of help to those who have read the book in Chinese and also to those who wish to know the English equivalents for Dr. Sun's ideas, terms and phrases. Three features not in the original Chinese text have been added in the translation: The number of paragraphs has been increased. A few brief notes have been added to explain generally unfamiliar names and references. A brief summary has been placed at the beginning of each chapter. This translation was originally issued under the auspices of the China Committee, Institute of Pacific Relations, as a volume of the "International Understanding Series" with the hope that it will promote a better understanding abroad of the great forces that are now driving China forward.
This new Chinese Character Dictionary covers over 8000 Chinese simplified character entries in transcription, English meaning definitions and writing practice. Character entries are sorted according to the Chinese Radical system, and the increased coverage of Chinese characters exceeding the number of 3000 characters deemed to be the minimum for reading a newspaper daily, for example, will therefore also meet the higher demands of more advanced Western learners of Chinese. There is ample opportunity for writing practice; two Chinese character indices for locating Chinese character entries in this book (sorted by radicals and number of strokes) and two radical tables (covering both traditional and simplified Chinese characters for comparison) at the end complete the material of the book.

This book explores the narrative time of Konjowochu based on the theoretical approach of narrative time mainly introduced by Gerard Genette in Narrative Discourse and Shlomith Rimmon-Kenan in Narrative Fiction. Thus, the book demonstrates the three aspects of narrative time: order, duration and frequency in Konjowochu. The analysis of the time structure of this novel indicates that the time arrangement in the narrative is crucial for the understanding of the narrative.

This book is about the question of existence, the meaning of ‘life’. It is an enquiry into the contemporary human situation as disclosed by television. The elementary components of any real-world situation are place, people and time. These are first examined as basic existential phenomena drawing on Heidegger’s fundamental enquiry into the human situation in Being and Time. They are then explored through the technological and production care-structures of broadcast television which, routinely and exceptionally, display the situated experience of being alive and living in the world today. It shows routinely in the live self-enactments of persons being themselves and the liveness of their ordinary talk on television. It shows exceptionally in television coverage of great occasions and catastrophes as they unfold live and in real time. Case studies reveal the existential role of television in salvaging the possibility of genuine experience, and in revealing the world-historical character of life today. To explore these questions, the agenda of sociology – its concern with economic, political and cultural life – is set aside. Being in the world is not, in the first (or last) instance, a social but an existential question, as an existential enquiry into television today discovers. Passionate and sweeping in scale, this new book from a leading media scholar is a major contribution to our understanding of the media today.
