China by Arthur Cotterell

Book Description

One of the most far-reaching events since the Second World War is the re-emergence of China as a world power, and its present government's willingness to open up the country to the rest of the world. This comprehensive cultural history ranges from prehistoric times to the present - from the disunity of Pre-Imperial China to the renaissance of the Sung and Tang dynasties, from the Mongol conquest to Tiananmen Square and the 1989 student revolt. By placing the modern country in historical perspective this brilliant study reveals how many continuities there are within the oldest of all civilizations.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » A comprehensive yet compact and highly readable history of the largely misunderstood world power, from pre-history right through to the tragedy of Tiananmen Square. Cotterell goes a long way to explaining the anachronisms and problems of contemporary China by uncovering so many aspects of 'the oldest surviving civilisation'. Ideal for anyone who was fascinated by Wild Swans and who wants no know more. (Kirkus UK)
