9780195171020: The Ancient Chinese World (The World in Ancient Times)

Pangu, a god asleep inside a giant black egg for 18,000 years, wakes up to create the world. Liu Bang, the founder of a Chinese dynasty, begins his life as a peasant. Sun Tzu, a fearless war strategist, writes one of the most popular books of all time. These are just a few of the captivating figures you'll meet in The Ancient Chinese World.

Terry Kleeman and Tracy Barrett use a rich variety of intriguing primary sources-turtle shells, clay pots, an ancient wall, folk songs, poetry, and more-to construct a lively history of the politicians, farmers, warriors, and philosophers who created and shaped the ancient Chinese world. They also show us the fascinating process of constructing the historical jigsaw puzzle. Archaeologists discover a 400,000-year-old skull near modern-day Beijing and determine that it is one of our earliest human ancestors. A scholar who is prescribed "dragon bones" to cure an illness realizes that the bones-which are actually turtle shells-contain ancient Chinese writing used to send messages to the gods. The fantastic discovery of Lady Hao's tomb reveals that in ancient China a powerful woman led soldiers into battle. The letters exchanged by two military leaders show not only how the Chinese invented the sword, but also how they used the kite as a military weapon. Using these ancient artifacts and writings, Kleeman and Barrett weave the dramatic story of rulers, writers, soldiers, and citizens who made up the fascinating and unique world of ancient China.

About the Author:

From School Library Journal:

Grade 9 Up–Readers seriously interested in history, in archaeology–or in China–will be well served by this engrossing book. Its 23 chapters progress chronologically, but each has a focus (e.g., the Shang, warfare, Buddhism, crafts, the role of women), and several of them engagingly retell the story of a memorable person, like Shensheng, Lady Hao, Laozi, and Wang Mang. A pronunciation chart is provided, along with phonetic versions of each name in a short "Cast of Characters." Primary-source material used throughout is identified in situ. Fascinating sidebars, superb maps, and color photos and reproductions with informative captions add utility and appeal. Women are as much a part of the story as possible (considering their generally low status). A time line covering 700,000 B.C.E. to 589 C.E. helps to sort out reigns, but some dates differ from those on a dynastic sidebar. Further-reading suggestions are organized under subject heads and include 17 annotated Web sites. Unfortunately, there are some glitches in the index. Nonetheless, this book contains a wealth of information, even if it isn't entirely accessible.–Patricia D. Lothrop, St. George's School, Newport, RI
