About this title

Synopsis:

Professor CM Si and his team have compiled this illustrated volume of 56 succinct essays grouped within 8 chapters, to cover the core myths, festivals, historical sites, food and sports, arts and crafts, language and literature, philosophy and international connections. These iconic stories, localities and cultural practices stretch back thousands of years and have emerged from amidst myriad other possible competitors as the foundational cultural grammar of the twenty-first century China. This book will be invaluable to all students of Chinese culture but also to the educated observer of world cultures and travelers to China. In understanding the foundational principles underlying Chinese culture, readers will be able to make far better sense of the uniqueness of the modern China that they see before them.
