Three thousand years of Chinese history in an accessible and
authoritative single volume. Despite the recent rise of China to a
position of dominance on the world economic stage, Chinese history
remains an elusive subject. Yet it is this vast narrative of
appalling loss, superhuman endeavour and incredible invention that
has made China the superpower it is today. From the dawn of legend
to the succession of great dynasties, from Confucius to Chairman
Mao and from the clamour of revolution to the lure of slick
capitalism, John Keay takes the reader on a sweeping tour through
Chinese history. This is a definitive and indispensable account of
a country set to play a major part in our future.
