Focus 17: An A-Z of Chinese History

An A-Z of Chinese History takes you on a whistle-stop tour of the nation’s past, picking out the tales of the key people, places and events that still shape China today. From the hugely influential Analects of Confucius all the way through to the battle strategies of Zhuge Liang, each chapter says something different about the past – including many centuries of imperial China – as well as something more about the country today.
