Description

In this colorful, carefully detailed history of China, Christopher Hibbert, a Heinemann Award-winning author and leading popular historian, treats listeners to the fascinating daily lives of the self-sufficient people and the ruthless, dynastic politics of this world power. Beginning with Britain's first disastrous visit, Hibbert focuses on China's struggle to maintain its national identity in the face of increasing international pressure. His thoughtful chronicle adds a sharper perspective of the current strained relations between East and West.
