Material Culture in Europe and China, 1400-1800 by S. A. M. Adshead
Book DescriptionThis book reinterprets the rise of consumerism in terms of interaction between Europe and China 1400-1800. In particular, it examines the intellectual foundations of consumerism in food, dress, shelter, utilities, information and symbolism. It highlights consumerism as an expression of both rationality and freedom and indicates the constructive role it has played in the formation of the modern world. Particular use is made of comparisons between developments in Europe and China to differentiate both.

T'ang China, Hardback (July 2004)
this book presents a picture focused on the T'ang period, one of China's acknowledged golden ages. Within a looser web of globalization, the T'ang period and its dynamics offers a distant mirror of our own time. An argument in world history may thus cast light on issues in contemporary politics.

On the theme of China's relations with the non-Chinese world, not only political and economic, but cultural, social and technological as well, this text seeks to show that China's history is part of everyone's history. It traces China from the 13th century to the emergent world order.
