T'ang China: The Rise of the East in World History
Springer, 2004 M07 29 - 233 pages
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.
