About this title

Synopsis:

In good shape. Almost new.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 6 Up-The history of ancient China from 1700 B.C. to A.D. 200-the Shang Dynasty to the Han Dynasty-is told here. The major dynasties are described, as well as the archaeological discoveries that help to explain events during the time periods. Information on the problems archaeologists encountered while they worked is also included. Each of the four chapters is followed by a photo essay that further delineates specific art, artifacts, or findings from each period. For instance, the entry on the Eastern Zhou Dynasty offers a heavily illustrated essay on ``China's Desert Time Capsule,'' with crisp photographs of the relics unearthed there. Clear, full-color and black-and-white photos appear on almost every page. Diagrams and maps are also included. The book is well written, and the facts are interestingly presented. The layout is attractive. Unfortunately, there is no explanation at the beginning of the book of the organization of the chapters. Nonetheless, the excellent photography, gathering of archaeological detail, and inviting style make this volume a worthwhile addition.-Carol Kolb Phillips, The Library, East Brunswick, NJ
