Since entering the 21st century, China's economic aggregate and political influence have increased day by day. However, for a long time, the Western world's view of China has been full of various prejudices and misunderstandings which are produced by the ignorance of the history and current situation of Chinese civilization. This book aims to introduce all aspects of Chinese civilization in the most concise language in a way that is easiest for readers in the Western world to understand. It is hoped that readers can profoundly change their views on China after reading this book"--, Provided by publisher
