China: an illustrated history
China is one of the oldest civilizations in the world with a recorded history spanning almost 4,000 years; yet, to much of the outside world, it remains a mystery. Today, with one-fourth of the world's population and an imposing economy, China is playing an increasingly important role on the world stage.
This concise, illustrated volume offers the reader a panoramic view of this remarkable land, from remote antiquity to the twenty-first century. Among other topics, it explores sources of Chinese thought, cornerstones of Chinese political, religious and economic institutions and, above all, the cohesive ties that have bound China as a nation for thousands of years. This is a wonderful gift book for travelers, students, or anyone seeking to expand their knowledge of Chinese history, culture, and heritage.
