about

To understand China, we need to step into the palace of her culture and explore her rich history. With this in mind, a group of scholars from China and America have put this book together as a kind of primer on all things China, from art and science to religion and society. They have tried to offer here a panoramic view of the totality of Chinese culture, using only the most representative material, to introduce to the West the most typical aspects of Chinese civilization and life.

EditorsZhu Fayuan,Wu Qixing,Xia Hanning, andGao Hanare all scholars and experts in the analysis of traditional Chinese culture.
