Summary
This volume presents an introduction to more than 4,000 years of Chinese history, with the author telling the stories of the tyrants, despots, artists, warriors, and philosophers who have shaped this nation. He describes the technological advances that China's scientists and inventors made many hundreds of years before similar discoveries in Europe. The author also investigates the Chinese view of the world and examines the movements, aspirations, and philosophies that molded it. Lastly, the book examines the dramatic changes of the last few decades and the emergence of China as an economic and industrial 21st-century superpower.--
