2013 Independent Publishers Book Awards (IPPY) Bronze Medal for Graphic Novel (Drama/Documentary), and ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year Awards (BOTYA) 2012 Finalist in Graphic Novels (Adult Nonfiction).

Post-70s Chinese artist and entrepreneur, Liu Jing, continues his comic series of China’s 5,000-year history in Understanding China through Comics.

This second volume paints a vivid picture in answer to such questions as:

• What are the origins of the ethnic Chinese?
• Are Chinese people religious?
• What are the major Chinese cultural heritages and how were they created?
• What was China like when a centralized government fell and the empire was divided among several regional states?
• When people talk about “China’s great restoration” and China reclaiming its place as a world superpower, what are they referring to?
• Why is there such a strong drinking tradition at Chinese business banquets?

Understanding China through Comics Vol. 2 begins with the massive wars during China’s Age of Division and continues through the end of the Tang Dynasty -- a period in which different races, religions and philosophies come together. They fight and learn from each other, sparking new ideas and creating a new culture which continues to define the Chinese today.

New perspectives on Chinese history help explain complicated chains-of-events and uncover the driving forces behind the critical changes that shaped China. Research spans classic Chinese texts and contemporary historical works, including: ‘Records of the Grand Historian’ by Sima Qian, the father of Chinese history; ‘History of China’ by pre-liberation historian Wang Tongling; ‘The General History of China’ by his contemporary Lü Simian; ‘The Analects’ of Confucius; and historical information embedded in ancient Chinese paintings.

Understanding China through Comics includes 4 volumes:
Volume 1: The Yellow Emperor through the Han Dynasty (ca. 2697 BC - 220 AD)
Volume 2: The Three Kingdoms through the Tang Dynasty (220 - 907)
Volume 3: The Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdoms through the Yuan Dynasty under Mongol rule (907 - 1368)
Volume 4: The Ming and Qing Dynasties (1368 - 1911)

About the Author:

Liu Jing was born and raised in the era of opening-up Beijing. He is a successful Chinese artist and entrepreneur who works regularly with international clients and has made many friends through his work and travels inside and outside his native country. With this English comic book about Chinese history, Liu Jing hopes to put China into its historical context: for his newborn son, his friends both near and far, and for anyone who has even a passing interest in understanding what China is and from whence it came.
