Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
At the bargain price 10 dollars this is a good buy.

A bit of everything about China. Some traditional works of art, but also cities and innovations are counted as wonders.
The text is not the deepest, but the pictures are decent (many of them, rather small). This would make a fairly nice coffee table book. It can also be read by somebody who wants to know about the Chinese culture. It is perfect for browsing and you can read about one wonder and then close the book.

At the standard price, the book is probably not worth the price.

Format: Hardcover
Any collection strong in China surveys, from college-level holdings to general-interest public libraries, will want to include THE SEVENTY WONDERS OF CHINA in their collection. It provides a cultural and geographical review of the country's wealth with a strong focus on the arts, surveying its modern systems and its achievements. Entries come from experts from leading academic institutions in Asia and the West and are accompanied by color photos and maps throughout. The result is an excellent review certain to appeal to both general-interest browsers and students of Chinese history and culture alike.

This book has perfect photos of great places of China that we visit on our several trips. It made my husband happy to remember those sites again.
