The Culture of China

The Culture of China

Reverberations of China’s diversity and multiethnic heritage are visible in everything from the cuisine and languages to the beliefs and arts of the vast nation. In addition to linking the Chinese to their rich past, a number of these traditions have been absorbed by cultures around the world and have granted many entrée into a nation otherwise far-removed from their own. This volume treats readers to a unique sensory experience, allowing them to better appreciate the sights, sounds, and tastes that have been developed and refined in China for centuries.
