Summary "The whole world has been watching the vast changes that are currently occurring in China, but few people are aware that at the same time, to ensure the writing system serves these changes well, Chinese characters have also undergone significant reform. This volume provides an analysis of the conflict between one of the world's oldest surviving script systems and the latest developments in communications technology."--Jacket
