China by Peter Delius
Book DescriptionInterest in China had never been greater - the country's economy is booming, and pundits predict that within 20 years it could be the world's largest economy. Right on time for the 2008 Beijing Olympics Games, this beautifully photographed and unconventional book offers a close-up on today's China. It includes a concise and knowledgeable survey of the cultural background of the Chinese Empire, telling its history through China's treasures, art and cultural heritage - from the Terracotta Army, to contemporary Chinese architecture. Organised geographically, the main section of the book enables readers to experience the beauty and diversity of the country's multifaceted provinces. In these chapters, the day-to-day lives of the people in China and the complex dialogue between tradition and modernity in contemporary Chinese society are depicted through vibrant images and text. The sections are cross-references against one another. Introductory texts give brief surveys of each region's history and special features, whilst further detail is provided in the illustrations' captions.
