A History Of Chinese Civilisation by Jacques Gernet
When published in 1982, this translation of Professor Jacques Gernet’s masterly survey of the history and culture of China was immediately welcomed by critics and readers. This revised and updated edition makes it more useful for students and for the general reader concerned with the broad sweep of China’s past. Written with an elegant and flowing narrative, the essential virtue of Jacques Gernet’s book is to see the history of Chinese civilization as a whole. Yet within the synthesis of the trends – social, political, religious, scientific, artistic – that make up China’s past and present, the author never loses sight of the telling detail that brings history to life.
