From the Publisher

The centuries-long complexity of China''s political experience, the richness of its culture, and the drama of its economic unfolding are the hallmarks of this short but sweeping history. China''s own history is entwined with its response to the West in a rich tapestry depicting its peoples, rulers, and society. More than a nuanced history of a vast continent, this study is sensitive to the multifaceted and changing interpretations of China that have been offered over the years.

In this overarching book, J. A. G. Roberts refers to recent archeological finds--the caches of bronze vessels found at Sanxingdui--and to new documentary reevaluations--the reassessment of Manchu documentation. The first half of the book provides an up-to-date interpretation of China''s early and imperial history, while the second half concentrates on the modern period and provides an interpretive account of major developments--the impact of Western imperialism, the rise of Chinese Communism, and the record of the People''s Republic of China since 1949.

Concise and direct, this book is a compelling narrative and handy companion for those interested in China.
