Reprint. This ed. originally published: London: Mentor, 1990.

One of the most far-reaching events since the Second World War is the re-emergence of China as a world power, and its present government's willingness to open up the country to the rest of the world. This comprehensive cultural history ranges from prehistoric times to the present - from the disunity of Pre-Imperial China to the renaissance of the Sung and Tang dynasties, from the Mongol conquest to Tiananmen Square and the 1989 student revolt.

By placing the modern country in historical perspective this brilliant study reveals how many continuities there are within the oldest of all civilizations.
