Eminently accessible, yet rigorous, this engaging introduction to the political, social, and cultural development of Chinese civilization tells the story of China--from its beginnings to the present day--in a way that goes beyond simple, misleading accounts of a glorious civilization falling victim to Western and Japanese imperialism or of a supposedly isolated country only recently and reluctantly opening to the outside world. Woven into the narrative are the striking stories of heroes and villains, of women and men, of tragedy and comedy, of high culture and coarse humor, of extremes of wealth and poverty, of feast and famine, and of exquisite art and terrible suffering.

Characteristic of Harold Tanner's presentation is the development and carefully balanced recounting of important themes--such as the ethnic diversity of the early empires, interaction with other civilizations, and the challenge of transforming a multi-ethnic empire into a modern nation-state--that other histories of China omit entirely or discuss only minimally.

Includes a chronology, suggested further readings, illustrations, maps, and an index.

Talk about China: A History

I bought this for a class. Very readable and understandable. China has a complex history, but the chronological outline of the text allowed me to focus my studies and get a pretty great grade in the class. The language was not complicated, but was still on a college reading level. It was formatted in a way that made studying less complicated. I would recommend this text for anyone wanting to learn more about China's unique history.

I've been doing some research on Chinese history and found Dr. Tanner's book extremely useful. The book is very well written and provides a very comprehensive historical account of China from the early empire to the current day. His book is based on extensive research and he has a very good understanding of Chinese literature and art. Tanner has also compiled a bibliography on Chinese history, which can be very useful if you want to do further research on the subject.

A great straight forward book that helps link together China's journey into the word earn world.
I'd recommend this book for anyone wanting to understand China, whether they be a novice or someone whole already has knowledge on this world power.

The first 70 pages of this 280 page book is word for word from volume 1. After the bibliography and the conclusion are removed, you're looking at maybe 150 pages of actual content. I'm not sure the price is worth it... Also the first edition had both volume 1 and 2 as one book. To separate the book into two and then basically reprint 70 entire pages just to pad the length is incredibly shady on the part of the publisher.

This is my second text of Sinology. I had a class with that used the De Bary text 15 years ago, and this is one of the two texts that I bought for a recent class in Chinese History. The other was the Ebrey text. Of the two, Tanner goes into more detail, so it is more intense study of Chinese History.

Great history book on China! China has a great history and Tanner captured it, to the point that it was well worth the read.
