What lies at the heart of Chinese culture? How have the Chinese people and their government changed over time?
Author and artist Jing Liu combines stark black-and-white drawings with a storyteller’s feel for pace and plot to depict storylines ranging from the political and economic to the cultural and personal. The result is not just a recounting of China’s history, but works that leave readers with a nuanced understanding of the forces that shaped—and continue to shape—the country. "[Brings] Chinese history to readers in a more clear, fun, and accessible way than it’s ever been done before," raves a teacher at the International School of Beijing.
