    While this book is not a scholarly treatise on the history and culture of China, it does provide a solid introduction for students or those interested in an overview of Chinese civilization.

It begins with the creation myths of ancient China, Paleolithic and Neolithic cultures, and archaeological discoveries. There is a discussion of the Shang and Zhou Dynasties and their rich cultural heritage. Five centuries of decentralization followed before the warlords emerged in a constant struggle for dominance. When the Han Dynasty gained power, they consolidated the best features of previous rulers which led to a golden age for the Chinese people and the emergence of the Silk Road trade. New inventions like paper and ship rudders led to technological advances. Rulers began to rely less on religion and gradually the lords under them who formerly owned much of the land diminished in significance. There is a discussion of Chinese folk religion as well as more established religions like Confucianism and metaphysical thought. The Chinese used paper, melted iron ore, and created steel. They learned how to use the water wheel and invented the gear: the Chinese learned to pump water through pipes for irrigation. A timeline of Chinese history is added, but I believe it would have been more effective if written as a horizontal graphic. The bibliography is not a list of sources but a recommendation of other books in the Captivating History series. This book is entertaining and informative for readers age ten and older. Teachers and homeschool parents might consider it a worthwhile introduction to Chinese history and culture.

    This is a difficult read. I've had to do something I don't like doing and abandon reading this half way through because it's too difficult to digest. I hate doing this but I'm not taking any of this in, it's just causing headaches! I wouldn't recommend this unless your Chinese or have a deep interest in China. I'm not being racist but the Chinese names are confusing and not for me I'm afraid. Maybe I'll come back to it at a later date but today it's out me off reading. This is a difficult read.

    Un libro bastante breve pero que deja de ser fascinante como el titulo lo indica, el contenido de algunos capitulos es bastante escuento y mal redactado, aunque otros estan mejor presentados y con informacion bastante muy interesante. La incorporacion de mapas y referencias ilustradas ayuda y motiva bastante. Debo admitir que he aprendido mucho.

    First 8 chapters or so focus a lot on which kingdoms were attacking which, which was a bit dry, but the last couple of chapters on culture and technology were pretty interesting. It was good to get a clear overview of the distinct periods in ancient Chinese history so that I can study deeper those that interest me.
