"China is the world's oldest living civilization, in terms of a continuity of culture, and also one of the great international powers of today. A sharply focused understanding of its past is essential for making sense of its complex present, and archaic China is visible now with a clarity that would hardly have been thinkable a lifetime ago. The purpose of this Atlas is to make this strange and recently discovered world-both past and present-accessible to the general reader."--dustjacket gatefold.
