As the authors point out, China has arrived, big time. To ignore the Chinese is foolish. Yet, where does one begin? Getting a handle on China, with its sweeping history and vast cultural diversity, is, for most, a daunting task. China: Ancient Culture, Modern Society provides a much-needed starting point for piecing together the many parts of the complex puzzle that is China. More than simply a guidebook or historical survey, this rich volume bridges geography, culture, politics, and beliefs to present a nuanced picture of a nation that is often misunderstood by those seeking to view it through a Western lens. Whether one is approaching China for the first time or seeking to fill the gaps in one’s existing understanding of things Chinese, this book provides an abundance of useful information. – Brent Fulton, Ph.D., Director, ChinaSource.
