Format: Hardcover
For those with an interest in early imperial China, this is an exceptional resource. It's quite readable and detailed enough to provide a solid background for narrower studies or to provide Tang-specific information to a Chinese history generalist. For those with more academic needs, I would still recommend it, but would note that Benn has chosen readability over extreme granularity of detail -- e.g., we read about "a son of the emperor," rather than learning the prince's name in Chinese characters and in English.

Having a Chinese wife and a deep respect for Chinese culture, I find this book invaluable in understanding China's past. Read it. It is so important to know more about the country that will, within the lifetime of many of us, overtake the USA as the number one global power. In a well-written and widely researched book, Charles Benn has achieved the impossible... brought to life for a modern Westerner a strangely alien world from which the China we know (or think we know) has emerged. Follow this book with 'When China Rules the World' by Martin Jacques (Penguin Books) and you'll be getting somewhere!
