Intended both for the general reader and the serious student, "The Arts of China" presents a fascinating and balanced picture of Chinese art from the Stone Age to the present day. The author concerns himself not only with art, but also with Chinese philosophy, religion, and the realm of ideas. At the same time, he places the arts in their political and social setting. Hence his book is not merely a history of art but, to some degree, a cultural history of China as well.
