Description de l’éditeur
By Gertraude Roth Li. 2nd ed. Honolulu: national Foreign language resource center, 2010. Pp. xii + 418. $43.50. It has been ten years since Gertraude Roth Li published her Manchu: A Textbook for Reading Documents. It was clear at that time she intended to produce a second edition. When the book was first published she established a web-group for readers to sign in and ask questions about the text, communicate and exchange ideas with fellow readers, and suggest corrections and/or improvements in the text for some future edition. That future edition has now arrived with this new volume. With this book Professor Roth Li continues her invaluable service to the field. As Jerry Norman said in a review of the original edition: "This book is the first adequate text for the teaching of Manchu written in English. ... The author ... has done a valuable service to the field" ("Review of Manchu: a Text [sic] for Reading Documents," in Saksaha: A Review of Manchu Studies 5 : 41-42).
