Sintesi dell'editore

Since Marco Polo, the fabled markets of China have drawn the West like a magnet. This ancient culture has been colonized by foreign powers, buffeted by war and revolution, yet China remains one of the most constant of international influences. It is a sleeping giant. Many fear, and some welcome, its awakening. This presentation examines both the changing and constant face that China has offered to the world.

The World's Political Hot Spots series explains the basis of conflicts in some of the world's most politically sensitive areas. Many of these regions are in today's headlines, and tensions recently have become violent in virtually all of them. Each presentation covers up to 10 centuries of background, revealing how and why today's problems occur.

Excellent summary of China's history

This is an excellent summary of the long history of China. More than a recitation of facts, this work puts the many changes of China's political history in context. Covers the earliest periods up til the economic explosion of the 1990s. If you're curious about the cuntry or planning a visit, this is a must listen.

China Unfolded

China has long been a mystery of culture little understood to most westerners. The histery unvieled in this narrative has opened my eyes to a new understanding of the "silent tiger". My desire to visit and enjoy this culture has been greatly inhanced.

Fantasic book

As a Chinese,I need to say this book is really based on Chinese history not on imagination.

A good introduction; irksome "Chinese" accent

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Richard C. Hottelet?

Richard Hottelet did a great job. However, the Chinese accent used by the reader of the translated quotes was annoying (it sounded fake. If this is a natural accent, then my apologies). Of course, these quotes should be translated for an English-speaking audience, but why must the speaker have a Chinese accent?? Since there is not much in the way of back and forth conversational narrative, there is no need to differentiate between speakers by accent; and no need to listen to an actor mispronounce English words because he is playing a historic character who likely never spoke English.

Do you think China needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes. This book could have been much longer.

Any additional comments?

Overall, a brief & good introduction.
