The History of China

The History of China

China’s unmatched ability to reinvent itself over the centuries is perhaps its most timeless asset. Even in the wake of violent civil wars, Mongol invaders, and turbulent governance, China has endured and, in recent times, achieved a level of prosperity rivaled by few other countries in the world. The events that transformed China from an imperial nation to a superpower are chronicled in this comprehensive volume that introduces the history of the world’s largest and one of its most dynamic populations. Accompanied by vivid images, the narrative provides readers with new perspective on this ancient culture. Preview this e-book now. E-mail us at contact@eb.com to learn more.
