Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Many nations define themselves in terms of territory or people; China defines itself in terms of history. Taking into account the countrys unrivaled, voluminous tradition of history writing, John Keay has composed a vital and illuminating overview of the nations complex and vivid past. Keays authoritative history examines 5,000 years in China, from the time of the Three Dynasties through Chairman Mao and the current economic transformation of the country. Crisp, judicious, and engaging, China is the classic single-volume history for anyone seeking to understand the present and future of this immensely powerful nation.

Synopsis:

An authoritative history of five millennia of Chinese history

About the Author

John Keay is a former special correspondent for the Economist and contributes regularly to the Sunday Telegraph, Times Higher Educational Supplement, and the Literary Review. His past books include the best-selling India: A History. He lives in Argyll, Scotland.
