"This addition to the authoritative multivolume Cambridge History of China presents a chronological account broadly focused on the political and military history of a period of vast, deep, and irreversible change...Scholarly footnotes, 32 maps, and a 53-page bibliography offer guidance for further research...No serious student can afford to neglect this excellent starting point for research and reflection. In tandem with its forthcoming companion volume of topical essays, it testifies to the radical vigor of scholarship that during the last 50 years has radically changed and continues to transform scholarly understanding of these three and a half centuries. Indispensable to advanced students. Summing Up: Essential."
This volume on the Sung Dynasty (960-1279) and its precursors presents the political history of China from the fall of the T'ang Dynasty in 907 to the Mongol conquest of the Southern Sung in 1279. The Sung era witnessed the profound social, intellectual, and economic transformation of China.

The production is abysmal, however, and Cambridge University Press should be ashamed of themselves. The whole thing looks like a bad photocopy from somebody's graduate seminar, and they're not exactly charging bottom-dollar for this volume. It's so bad that often you can't even make out Chinese characters in titles in the bibliography. By far the ugliest volume yet, uglier even than the old Taiwanese reprints of earlier volumes in the series.
