A Different China in The Guardian and China Daily
35,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Usually different media have different perspectives and positions. The diversity may be noticeable when media are from different countries with different regimes and cultures. The author compared news reports about the same event related to China in two influential newspapers: The Guardian and China Daily from the perspective of a linguist to find different perspectives and how they are expressed. The domains of Critical Discourse Analysis and System-Functional Linguistics are mainly related. Labov s six elements about narrative structure and Halliday s transitivity contribute most to the methodology. The author finds that abstract and complicating actions are the only two obligatory elements while others among Labov s six elements are optional elements. Moreover, Halliday s transitivity contributes diversely to the bias in a news report. In addition, this research shows that active voice and transactive verbs are the mainstream in news reports, which implies that journalists attach great importance to actors and actions in a news event. This book will be useful for students and researchers on linguistics and newspaper study.

China at War
26,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

China´s War of Resistance against Japan, as WWII is known in China, was never about the defeat of Japan alone. China was also at war with itself. Between 1937 and 1949, a vicious revolutionary war between Nationalists and Communists, divided by radically different views about China´s future, ravaged the country, killing millions and laying waste to cities and the countryside. The outcomes of these wars have shaped the country and the world since.China at War focuses on this period, examining the complex truth behind the propaganda of both East and West. Cambridge professor Hans van de Ven shows how the results of the fighting ended European imperialism in East Asia, restored China to its traditional position of regional centrality, and gave the USA a decisive role in East Asian politics. In the process, he argues, it also triggered profound changes in warfare, as important as the development of atomic weapons, and gave the countryside a new social, political and military significance.Through fascinating personal accounts and extensive scholarship, China at War casts new light on this crucial period of history, and harnesses contemporary art, culture and ideology to illuminate world-changing events.

2011 reist Sascha Hommer nach China, es ist seine zweite Reise ins Reich der Mitte. Vier Monate lang lebt er in der westchinesischen Millionenstadt Chengdu, wo ein befreundetes Paar ein Stadtmagazin herausgibt. Mit 14 Millionen Einwohnern ist die Hauptstadt Sichuans eine Boomtown des 21. Jahrhunderts, die hemmungslos wächst und wächst. In seinem Reisetagebuch ´´In China´´ widmet sich Sascha Hommer den absurden und abgründigen Alltagsgeschichten, die eine Stadt wie Chengdu hervorbringt. Auch fernab der prosperierenden Ballungszentren der Ostküste hat das chinesische Wirtschaftswachstum seine unübersehbaren Spuren hinterlassen: Aus dem einstigen Aussteigermekka Chengdu ist eine Metropole der chinesischen Gegenwart geworden, die dem westlichen Blick fremd und unzugänglich bleibt.
