The Translation of Things Past: Chinese History and Historiography
Edited by George Kao
China boasts of the world's oldest continuous historical records, and the study of history has always been one of the most respected fields in her scholarly tradition. One of the best ways to understand Chinese culture is therefore through a study of Chinese views on and approaches to history. The twelve articles collected in this anthology are the work of leading Chinese and Western specialists. They write to illuminate the various aspects of Chinese history and historiography, and in that process, throw light on China's multi-faceted cultural heritage.
