The Sextants of Beijing: Global Currents in Chinese History Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An inviting history of China from the days of the ancient Silk Road to the present, this book describes a civilization more open and engaged with the rest of the world than we think. Whether in trade, religious belief, ideology, or technology, China has long taken part in fruitful exchange with other cultures.

Synopsis:
