One of the new titles, Shamrock & Chopsticks, is a collection of essays written by Jin Di, whose translation of James Joyce's Ulysses into Chinese is recognized as a monumental work that has encouraged Chinese studies in Joyce over the years.

The other three new titles cover business letter writing and communication in Chinese. Writing Chinese Letters for Business in the 21st Century is a comprehensive handbook for writing business letters in various fields. Different sections in the book offer notes, together with examples, to demonstrate the effective use of business communication in Chinese.

Communication in Chinese: Fundamentals and Communication in Chinese: On Writing
