A panoramic overview of the history, people, culture, art and architecture, commerce, and other aspects of China offers a visual timeline chronicling China's four-thousand-year history, as well as a thoughtful look at the dramatic social, economic, and political changes affecting the country and hundreds of dramatic photographs and illustrations.

Book News
This beautifully illustrated volume, printed in an oversized format (10x12.25"), presents separate sections on China's landscape, history, culture, and architecture. The spectacular photographs dominate, but the text is not superficial. Especially compelling are the chapters devoted to the lives of 14 Chinese from all ages and walks of life who live in different parts of this diverse country, with details of their daily life and photos of their houses, families, and surroundings.
