An excellent and compact dictionary, that while not by any means comprehensively covering every Chinese character, cover many common ones and compounds. The unique feature of this dictionary enables the user to chart the historical development of the character from its ancient origin to its present form. Also, the dictionary while printed using traditional-form characters, not only gives simplified variants, but also gives a guide to usage when characters or words differ in usage on the Mainland or in Taiwan.
