9780714124841: Ming: 50 years that changed China

Ask anyone what single object they associate with China and the most common answer will be a Ming vase. Probably without even knowing the dates of the Ming dynasty (1368–1644), people are aware of the fragility of its porcelain, its rarity and value. But porcelain is just one part of the story of one of the most glorious époques of China’s past. By focusing on the significant years of the early Ming dynasty and through the themes of court people and their lives, extraordinary developments in culture, the military, religion, diplomacy and trade, this magnificent book brings the wider history of this fascinating period to colorful life.

This was an age of great voyages of exploration, undertaken for many reasons including trade and diplomacy. Long before the regular arrivals of Europeans in China, court-sponsored expeditions were sent to Asia, the Middle East, and the African coast, bringing back knowledge of and objects from lands thousands of miles away--gold, gems and foreign fashions. This period also saw the compilation of the world’s first comprehensive encyclopaedia (worked on by over 2,000 scholars); the undertaking of major building projects such as the Forbidden City and Ming tombs; the creation of beautiful textiles, paintings, ceramics, gold, jewellery, furniture, jade, and lacquer.

Review:

This global perspective in its analysis on fifteenth-century Ming China is one of the greatest strengths of this volume....[A] wonderful collection of both stunning images and thoughtful essays.... An important work in art history, it provides insight into the military in fifteenth-century China and adds to scholarly understanding of the otherwise understudied formative years of the Ming Dynasty that set the foundation for what the empire was becoming.--Shery Chanis"H-Net Reviews" (01/01/2015)
