Publisher's Summary

Chinese history covers thousands of years, is rich in culture, legends, myths, empires, battles, and remains one of the most interesting in the world.

In this book, we explore the magnificent history of China from the early origins to its rise as a modern super power.

While there are many books that explore China’s history, public knowledge is still lacking. Many people can name more than one Roman Emperor, but how many can name a Chinese Emperor? 

For anyone who wants to know more about this once closed and distant culture, History Brought Alive brings you a concise, masterful, and reliable book on the history of China. 

Join us as we travel through over four thousand years of Chinese history, culture, myths and more. Beginning from the earliest creation myths and the first archaeological evidence of complex societies, we will ground your understanding in the foundations of China’s past. 

Inside, you will discover:

  • The five major eras—ancient China and the first, second, and third imperial ages and the modern age
  • Innovations, world firsts, and important inventions—including paper money, insurance, the printing press and more
  • The prosperity and rise of the Han Chinese (the majority ethnic group in China)
  • Marco Polo - how a lowly merchant from the opposite end of the Earth found a place of high employment
  • The Mongol terror - bloodshed, Genghis Khan and The Mongol Raiders
  • Great personages including Emperor Wu, Mao Zedong, Gin Shi Huangdi, Confucius, and more 
  • The cultural revolution - how Mao Zedong and the Communist party began transforming china
  • And much, much more… 

Whether you're a history enthusiast or just a curious listener...in this audiobook, you will discover a wealth of Chinese cultural history, mythology and more.

So if you want to find out more about Chinese history, then this is the book for You
