About this title


Whatever roles they played-toiling on the land or in iron foundries, composing official documents or courtly verse, patrolling bustling marketplaces or restive borders-people in ancient China saw themselves as performing on a cosmic stage, living and working in precarious harmony with natural forces as well as one another.


"Information is presented clearly, with a nice selection of interesting detail to illustrate points and a generous sprinkling of footnotes. Numerous black-and-white illustrations include period engravings, documents, paintings, and photographs of artifacts. Photographs showing modern reenactments are clearly labeled. This resource is a solid addition to the existing body of literature."
