One of the world’s most influential superpowers—China—is brought to life by the Field Museum
China: A History traces the 7,000-year story of this diverse land. Young readers learn about prehistoric China, follow the rise of emperors and the fall of dynasties, and come to understand how China became the world powerhouse for trade that it is today. The book also explores the role of children and women in everyday life as well as how religion, politics, and economics shaped the deep traditions and dynamic changes of modern China. Inspired by the Cyrus Tang Hall of China at the Field Museum, Chicago, the book includes full-color maps, photos, and illustrations. This is a go-to resource for young readers looking to learn more about this powerful nation. It includes a timeline, a bibliography, and an index.
