The History of China


Every school and public library should update its resources on China with this engagingly written and succinct narrative history of China from prehistoric times to 2000. The world's oldest continuing civilization, China's technological, cultural, and philosophical developments have influenced the world throughout its long history. Wright, an expert on China, has written a fascinating history that not only makes the complex history of China clear to the reader, but weaves into each era of that history the thematic strands of diplomatic, cultural, and technological history.
