In comparison, in the Wade-Giles romanization method for Mandarin, a hyphen is placed between the two words--as in "Yo-Yo Ma"--to indicate their connection.
Several methods of transliteration are widely used, the most prominent being Pinyin--which recently has gained ascendancy because of its formal adoption by the People's Republic of China--and Wade-Giles, which previously had been predominant.
Besides the above merits, the book adopts pinyin system, instead of the older Wade-Giles system, for romanization of Chinese characters; this is a good and wise choice.
Ch'ing follows the Wade-Giles system which was prevalent in the West during much of the 20th century and which is still in use, especially by the older generation of scholars who have not changed their ways.
