[An] unparalleled collection of Chinese facts and analysis, reaching from the earliest recorded times to the late twentieth century It comprises fourteen supremely learned book length parts in seventy six chapters, including entries on language, people, geography, and the environment, on ideas and beliefs, and on technology and science What is most fascinating for me and, I suppose, older China hands, is Wilkinson s passion for minutiae [A] mighty book Magnificent.--Jonathan Mirsky"New York Review of Books blog" (12/10/2013)"Review:
The recent publication of Wilkinson s "Chinese History: A New Manual" was and remains a major event [It] is in many ways an entirely new organism that is quite different from its predecessors. It incorporates a million new words of text and substantially new material The book is, in every way, absolutely indispensable to work in Chinese history.--Carla Nappi"New Books in East Asian Studies" (03/08/2013)"
