In the tradition of Barbara Tuchman and Jonathan Spence, former veteran National Geographic staff writer Louise Levathes delivers a vivid, you-are-there account of the great age of Chinese maritime exploration. Levathes takes a fascinating look at China's rise as a naval power--and its plunge into isolation when a new emperor ascended the Dragon Throne.
