Stacey Pierson (of the School of Oriental and African Studies) writes with humour, injecting her obvious pleasure into the topic making it a joy to read, even for non-academics. It is informative, critical and well planned out. A must read for all those studying Chinese ceramics, with an introduction to the topic from the neolithic to the present day, a discussion of production, aesthetics, consumption, trade and a final chapter on Chinese ceramics in the modern world. The focus of the book is not neolithic ceramics, it is mainly Imperial Chinese ceramics and their trade throughout the (mostly) the western world. The bibliography is good, with both English and Chinese language sources.

The bibliography is good, drawing on both English and Chinese language sources.
