Riassunto: Drawn from Chinese classics of history, Hung Hing Ming's biographies introduce China's most emblematic historical figures and the cultural attributes fostered by China's ancient chronicles. This book is about one of the greatest emperors in Chinese history, Zhao Kuang Yin, founder of the Song Dynasty (960 1279). He is honored for having unified China in the extremely chaotic period of 'Five Dynasties and Ten States'.

This enjoyable little book introduces more of China's heroes and villains, highlighting a modest man yet a great emperor who brought peace and stability to the realm and saved the people from great suffering. Interwoven into the narrative of battles fought and alliances forged or flouted, we find examples of good leadership and bad, hot-headed fighters and disciplined warriors, and lessons on how to assess and win people's loyalty.

L'autore: Hung Hing Ming studied English at China's most prestigious university and worked as an official interpreter and translator with the United Nations.

He taught English at Zhongshan University (Dr. Sun Yat San University), Guangzhou, as an associate professor and an instructor for graduate students in the Foreign Languages and Literature Department. He was a visiting scholar at the University of California at Berkeley and at the University of Kansas from late 1984 to 1987, when he earned his Masters degree in linguistics before returning to Zhongshan University. In 1991, Mr. Hung moved to Hong Kong where he worked for international law firms for close to 20 years. Mr. Hung is writing a series of biographies to introduce some of China's most emblematic historical figures to the American public.
