How Chinese characters triumphed over the QWERTY keyboard and laid the foundation for China's information technology successes today. Chinese writing is character based, the one major world script that is neither alphabetic nor syllabic. Through the years, the Chinese written language encountered presumed alphabetic universalism in the form of Morse Code, Braille, stenography, Linotype, punch cards, word processing, and other systems developed with the Latin alphabet in mind. This book is about those encounters—in particular thousands of Chinese characters versus the typewriter and its QWERTY keyboard. Thomas Mullaney describes a fascinating series of experiments, prototypes, failures, and successes in the century-long quest for a workable Chinese typewriter. The earliest Chinese typewriters, Mullaney tells us, were figments of popular imagination, sensational accounts of twelve-foot keyboards with 5,000 keys. One of the first Chinese typewriters actually constructed was invented by a Christian missionary, who organized characters by common usage (but promoted the less-common characters for “Jesus" to the common usage level). Later came typewriters manufactured for use in Chinese offices, and typewriting schools that turned out trained “typewriter girls” and “typewriter boys.” Still later was the “Double Pigeon” typewriter produced by the Shanghai Calculator and Typewriter Factory, the typewriter of choice under Mao. Clerks and secretaries in this era experimented with alternative ways of organizing characters on their tray beds, inventing an input method that was the first instance of “predictive text.” Today, after more than a century of resistance against the alphabetic, not only have Chinese characters prevailed, they form the linguistic substrate of the vibrant world of Chinese information technology. The Chinese Typewriter, not just an “object history” but grappling with broad questions of technological change and global communication, shows how this happened.

Maybe you think learning and really understanding Chinese characters (called kanji in Japan, hanzi in China, hanja in Korea) is impossible. Perhaps thus far, it has been. Fortunately, however, the times have changed with this character dictionary. This translation of Shirakawa's bestselling Japanese dictionary gives you the correct explanations with an introduction to their mindset. It is the long-awaited true system of Chinese characters revealed for the first time and the only help for understanding and memorizing Chinese characters that works. Shizuka Shirakawa (1910-2006) was a terrific Chinese character scholar who is now widely acknowledged in East Asia. Christoph Schmitz is lucky being the only western scholar to have met and exchanged letters with him. He made East Asia's foremost Chinese character research available in English for the first time. * SHIRAKAWA METHOD -- Includes vocabulary and a commentary on the Shirakawa approach. * FULLY INDEXED -- Alphabetical vocabulary and classifier index. * THOROUGH CHARACTER FORM EXPLANATIONS -- Practical commentary explains the history of each character, revealing the hitherto undisclosed secrets of Chinese characters. * FOR ENGLISH SPEAKERS -- This amazing resource is the world's first truly independent look into kanji-guru Shirakawa's work and gives English-speaking readers an unbiased, beautifully printed and time-saving access to the best kanji method available. A practical comment explains the history of character research and its failures in East Asia and the West, the hitherto undisclosed secrets of Chinese characters, and also their political usage.
