For more than 1000 years Chinese silks and porcelain have been coveted and sought by peoples around the world. This survey describes the origins of these achievements and sets them in context alongside the other arts of China, including lacquer, cloisonne and glass.

This is easily the best introductory overview of Chinese art to appear in years. A readable and attractive volume, it integrates Chinese history, culture, art, and relations with other countries into chapters covering types of objects (e.g., jades and bronzes for ritual, luxuries for trade, ceramics for use). Edited by renowned scholar Rawson of the British Museum, this work provides a wealth of information at a level suitable for students and interested readers. The illustrations are well chosen from the British Museum and other collections, and appendixes supply additional details on vessel shapes, dynastic history, archaeological sites, and more. Highly recommended for both general and specialized collections.
