    Notional Analysis of Chinese Academic Discourse on China presents an executive summary of Chinese academic discourse about China’s progress and achievements in the past one hundred years.

    Using a scientometric method to analyze bibliographic records retrieved from the largest library database in China on aspects of Chinese Studies, this book offers an insider’s view regarding social, cultural, historical and political aspects of China that have never been systematically published in English before. This book first follows a quantitative approach using bibliometric analysis to identify keywords in the Chinese academic works about China in conceptual clusters for the past hundred years. Then a qualitative method is adopted to select significant and representative discourses within each conceptual cluster.

    By helping to establish two-way communication and facilitate mutual understanding, this book holds great potential for helping to resolve conflict and promoting peace.

    This book offers an eye-opening experience for anyone studying or researching Chinese Studies, including related subjects such as Chinese language, culture and education, or a broader subject within global politics, economy, sociology and culture, which acknowledges China as a major player in the field.
