This rich and absorbing history of China from earliest times to the present covers the country's complex political and economic structures and culture in a concise yet nuanced manner. For this new edition, Roberts has developed his analysis of recent interpretations of Chinese history, especially those relating to prehistory and early history, intellectual and cultural trends, China's relationships with her neighbours and the wider world, the rise of the Communists and the role of women in Chinese society.
