Discover the history of one of the world's most influential civilizations. Based on the Cyrus Tang Hall of China exhibit at The Field Museum, China: A History traces the 7,000-year story of this diverse land. Full-color maps, photos, and illustrations of the people, landscape, artifacts, and rare objects bring the history of this nation to life! Young readers learn about prehistoric China, follow the reign of emperors and dynasties, and come to understand how China became the world power that it is today. The book also explores the role of children and women in everyday life as well as how religion, politics, and economics shaped the deep traditions and dynamic changes of modern China. This book stands alone from the exhibition and is a go-to resource for young readers looking to learn more about this powerful nation. It includes a timeline, bibliography, and index.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A well-written and substantiated look at the long history of China."--School Library Connection
"An excellent resource and a beautifully presented, nuanced introduction to pre-20th-century Chinese history."--Kirkus Reviews
"As rich as the history it relates, this book is thoroughly illustrated with artwork, maps, and photographs--most from the Field Museum Collection. As in Bardoe's other works, the writing is lucid and thoughtful."--School Library Journal
