The History of China : Every Year

China: Five Thousand Years of History and Civilization

A much-refined second edition was published in and in January a simplified Chinese-character version was published in Beijing, opening the door for a wider audience to appreciate the treasures of Chinese culture. Our main aim throughout has been to allow young people to feast on the ancient wisdom of our forefathers by learning about the pantheon of Chinese civilization. It has taken more than five years to prepare the second edition of this book, upon which this English version is based. I am grateful that I was able to spearhead this project. However, the main credit goes to the excellent authors and editors. My colleagues and I believe great civilizations belong not only to their direct descendants but to all the people of the world, and we hope this book will be enjoyed by everyone with a general appreciation of Chinese culture as well as by university students in need of a thorough reference book for university-level general education courses. The team behind this project has noted that great civilizations such as those from China, India and the Islamic world have played a rather muted role on the academic stage in the West.
