Riassunto: About four to five thousand years ago, the fertile flatlands of the middle Yellow River slowly emerged and grew to what we know today as China. Throughout the millennia, this civilization has slowly evolved to be one of the world's biggest economies to reckon with today. This book is a quick introduction to China, with the major part being devoted to its long history. The reader is taken on an insightful journey through the dynasties and learns first hand the major evolutionary changes in almost every aspect of China's development, particularly in arts and culture.
This compact and accessible book successfully condenses five millennia of Chinese history and civilisation into 200 pages. More than a dry recitation of dates, names and events, the book coves a wide range of interesting topics such as the mythical beginnings of China, Chinese stories and legends, traditional Chinese medicine and more current facts and observations.
About the Author: Ong Siew Chey received his education in Chinese at Chung Ling High School, Penang, Malaysia. He became interested in Chinese literature in his early school years. He attended the University of California at Berkeley and subsequently the University of Chicago School of Medicine where he obtained his M.D. degree.
