Product description


[An] unparalleled collection of Chinese facts and analysis, reaching from the earliest recorded times to the late twentieth century It comprises fourteen supremely learned book-length parts in seventy-six chapters, including entries on language, people, geography, and the environment, on ideas and beliefs, and on technology and science What is most fascinating for me and, I suppose, older China hands, is Wilkinson s passion for minutiae [A] mighty book Magnificent.--Jonathan Mirsky"New York Review of Books blog" (12/10/2013)" [A] thoroughly revised and updated edition of eminent Chinese history expert Dr. Endymion Wilkinson s classic text An important reference text for anyone wanting to understand how China became what it is today and where it might be headed.--William Yeoman"West Australian" (02/19/2013)" The recent publication of Wilkinson s "Chinese History: A New Manual" was and remains a major event [It] is in many ways an entirely new organism that is quite different from its predecessors. It incorporates a million new words of text and substantially new material The book is, in every way, absolutely indispensable to work in Chinese history.--Carla Nappi"New Books in East Asian Studies" (03/08/2013)"
