It is easy to have a quick look at China's past and present, but it takes time to gain a panoramic knowledge of China. The "Panoramic China" series is meant to assist readers, especially those overseas, in this respect. Each volume in the series focuses on a province, municipality or autonomous region, describing, with illustrations, the outstanding characteristics of each area from different perspectives.  

Liaoning: Home of the Manchus & Cradle of Qing Empire

The Liaohe River plays important role in the history of Liaoning Province, which is named after the Liaohe River for its embracing the meaning of eternal peace. In the 16th century the tribes of Nuchen rose there and eventually established the last strong feudal dynasty in China's history-the Great Qing.

This book presents the reader with detailed and accurate texts and pictures of Liaoning's centuries-long civilization as well as its magnificent and glorious history during modern and contemporary times.
