China's 37 listed properties have covered all the categories of world heritage, cultural, natural, cultural and natural and cultural and scenic, which is also rare among other countries. To sum up, with all these listed properties, China is worthy of a big power of world heritage. The China Society of Cultural Relics has initiated and edited the World Heritage Collection in 2003 which presents them in excellent texts and illustrations. Now after five years necessary adjustment and supplement has been done on the original version. In addition to the present 37 World Heritage sites, the book covers the China's properties on the Tentative List for World Cultural Heritage and China National Natural Heritage and Natural & Cultural Heritage on the Tentative List as well as some listed properties of other countries. In order to mirror extensively our ancient historical and cultural heritage, the book has also included four Masterpieces of Oral and Intangible Heritages of Humanity: Kunqu, a Chinese opera, and Guqin, an ancient Chinese instrument, Urtiin Duu, a type of traditional Folk Long Song, and The Uyghur Muqam of Xinjiang, and China's Tentative List for Masterpieces of Oral and Intangible Heritages of Humanity. Currently in China, the book may be deemed the one with the richest content among those on world heritage, and provided an overall view of historical properties in China.
