Description

Histories of China available’ in the past have been too often technical studies or special pleas. This one is scholarly and interesting, and in the main, impartial. They present vividly the story of China’s ancient civilization from the beginnings in the cave villages of the Upper Yellow River 5000 B.C. to the convocation of the National Assembly at Peking in the winter of 1925-26.
