When it comes to food,the Chinese have a common saying, "The masses regard food as their heaven", which means that food is people's primal want,It should clearly justify the importance that "eating" holds in Chinese people's lives. Eating is not just meant to fill the stomach; haveing food at one's disposal,being able to consume a good amount of food, and knowing what and how to eat are all viewed as a good "fortune". Those who promote food cultue often use the words of Chinese philosopher Confucius, "diet and love-making, all primal needs of every human being," finding an aspiring and positive thought basis for such an epicurean lifestyle. There's probably not another place in this world that has as great a variety of delicious fare as China. The Chinese, who see eating as a fortune and life as an art, not only created various kinds of regional food styles in its own vat lands, but have also spread Chinese food culture to far across the seas. Today, in this world where even the farthest corners can seem as close as one's back yard, Chinese food can be enjoyed in each and every metropolitan throughout the world.

This book discusses the development of garment making through archeological investigation, and the portrayals of different types of clothing in ancient texts and drawings. As a retrospective of garments throughout Chinese history, we can define cultural movements throughout the centuries. In vivid color, with illustrations and photographs accompanying the text throughout.
