Reviews

" . . . a top pick for any college-level collection strong in Chinese history and culture, offering a revised full-color edition that brings to life elements of ancient Chinese history."--The Midwest Book Review, Mar 2008
" . . . richly illustrative narrative utilizing facsimiles of historical script and beautifully done photography. . . . a rigorous, but pleasurable intellectual endeavor without the trappings of tedious academic script. Fully referenced and loaded with facts . . . "--Robert Figler, Ph.D., Journal of Asian Martial Arts, Vol. 17, No. 3
"These days, we Americans would do well to understand the Chinese as thoroughly as we can; this book is a good starting point in beginning to understand that before 'we discovered' the Orient, it was doing fine without us and our primitive technologies."--Curled Up with a Good Book, Dec 2007
" . . . a must-have for history buffs and anyone who is interested in the rich and diverse contributions of ancient China to the modern world."--Vision Magazine, Feb 2008
