Essays on the periodization of Chinese history taken from historical sources as well as the writings of modern historians. Essays range from early Han dynasty writings (202 BC-220 AD) to the modern western writings of Hegel, Toynbee, and Spengler to contemporary studies in Chinese history. The question of what scheme of periods best helps explain Chinese history is the unifying theme.
