Description
:
This illustrated introduction to the history of China offers a fresh understanding of China?s progress from the Neolithic age to the present. Told in six chapters arranged chronologically, through art, artefacts, people and places, and richly illustrated with expertly selected objects and artworks, it firmly connects today?s China with its internationally engaged past. brbrFrom the earliest archaeological relics and rituals, through the development of writing and state, to the advent of empire, the author charts China?s transformation from ancient civilization into the world?s most populous nation and influential economy, offering the reader a myriad historical insights and cultural treasures along the way. This accessible book presents an eclectic mix of materials including Chinese theatre, the decorative arts, costume, jewelry and furniture-making, running through to the most recent diffusion of Chinese culture. brbrPublished to coincide with the reopening of the British Museum?s Sir Joseph Hotung Gallery of China and South Asia, this book will stimulate, fascinate and inform anyone interested in one of the greatest and most influential nations of the modern world.
