About this book

This book presents a picture focused on the T'ang period, one of China's acknowledged golden ages. Within a looser web of globalization, the T'ang period and its dynamics offers a distant mirror of our own time. An argument in world history may thus cast light on issues in contemporary politics.

Reviews

'Any student interested in macro-history, as well as in the history of China in pre-modern times, will be well rewarded by reading it.' - Professor John S. Gregory, former Professor of History, La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia

'T'ang China is historical argument at its best... The Adsheadian view of world history is wonderfully integrated and distinctive, and will stimulate debate for years to come.' - Brian Moloughney, Professor of History, University of Otago, New Zealand, and editor of the New Zealand Journal of Asian Studies
