About Author

The topics were selected by educator and linguist, Lin Handa (1900-1972), who drew up the outline for the collection and contributed some chapters. Following Lin's death, Cao Yuzhang (1924-1996) took over his mantle and completed the work. This combined effort of two consecutive authors has enjoyed wide appeal by virtue of its historical accuracy, well-structured narrative, fluent writing and distinctive style.
