Theirs was a rich civilization in which emperors are magnified, bureacrats satirized, women worshipped, nature revered, parting and death mourned, and war reviled. Dawson shows how Chinese art and literature are linked by the magic of the calligraphic brush-stroke, and the lasting influence of ancient doctrines on Chinese manners and institutions, all of which is deeply rooted in tradition.
