Product description


This massive tome crowns the long, distinguished career of Frederick Mote, an influential scholar of Late Imperial China in the United States... He does a wonderful job of reconstructing the history of such historically neglected regimes as Khitan-Liao, Jurchen-Jin, and Tangut-Western Xia, from the perspective of the Other. What I find most praiseworthy is the lucid, elegant expository style of writing...The book is likely to leave a profound and lasting impact on the reader in areas it focuses on, whichwill in turn help him or her better understand a given period of Late Imperial China from a long-term perspective.--Victor Cunrui Xiong "Chinese Historical Review "
