This book is a magic wand that helps you understand Chinese history with ease, as well as a window providing a convenient view on China.

It tells nearly 100 well-known stories from remote antiquity to the Revolution of 1911 in time sequence and takes key historical events and figures as the main line. We have strived to present the social changes, wars and battles, and culture and art in a series of accurate, vivid and concise stories. The book is a historical documentary with varied extraordinary splendor rather than a heavy, dull academic work.
