This broad-based overview of ancient China shows how the religion, technology, science, economics, and culture of China’s past have colored modern-day traditions. Even ideas such as feng shui—used in the imperial palace in the first-century CE—“continue to influence architecture and home design around the globe.” Graphics, maps, photos, and art reproductions give readers a sense of the history. One photograph, for example, shows an elegantly decorated bronze seismometer that court official Zhang Heng invented to predict earthquakes. The volume concludes with a time line; glossary; select bibliography; source notes; suggestions for further reading; a link to publisher-selected Web resources; and an index.
