This is the second in a series of books about the history of China geared for middle school students (ages 10-14). The first chapter is a comprehensive overview of ancient Chinese history from Neolithic times through the Tang Dynasty. The succeeding chapters focus upon each of China's last four dynasties - the Song, the Yuan, the Ming, and the Qing. Emphasis is placed upon the role played by particular outstanding individuals - emperors, philosophers, poets, artists, statesmen, and generals - and the ways in which they influenced and reflected the times in which they lived. Each chapter concludes with review questions and suggestions for enrichment activities. Included are maps, timelines, a glossary, and a detailed bibliography.
