Ancient China: A History surveys the East Asian Heartland Region - the geographical area that eventually became known as China - from the Neolithic period through the Bronze Age, to the early imperial era of Qin and Han, up to the threshold of the medieval period in the third century CE. For most of that long span of time there was no such place as "China", the vast and varied territory of the Heartland Region was home to many diverse cultures that only slowly coalesced, culturally, linguistically, and politically, to form the first recognizably Chinese empires. The field of Early China Studies is being revolutionized in our time by a wealth of archaeologically recovered texts and artefacts. Major and Cook draw on this exciting new evidence and a rich harvest of contemporary scholarship to presenta leading-edgeaccount of ancient China and its antecedents. With handy pedagogical features such as maps and illustrations, as well as an extensive list of recommendations for further reading, Ancient China: A History is an important resource for undergraduate and postgraduate courses on Chinese History, and those studuing Chinese Culture and Society more generally.

Sino-Iranica: China and Ancient Iran
109,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In this major study - regarded as his most important work - the pioneering anthropologist, Berthold Laufer documents the cultural transfers that took place between China and Iran in ancient times. He does so by tracing the history of cultivated plants, drugs, products, minerals, metals, precious stones and textiles, in their migration from Persia to China and from China to Persia. Walnut, peach, apricot and olive, as well as more exotic products like jasmine, henna, indigo, lapis lazuli, amber, coral, gold, ebony, zinc and myrrh are all included. Few other publications provide so much informative detail about the way human activity has modified the natural world through the movement of plants and other natural resource products from one historical civilisation to another. The work also offers important detail on Iran for periods when Iranian sources are slim. Introduced by Brian Spooner, Professor of Anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania, this classic work is once more available for all scholars of Iran, China and cultural exchange.

The organization and layout of the ancient Pingyao city are reviewed from the aspect of Chinese etiquette culture in this book. The city scale, city wall height and road width of the ancient Pingyao city were constructed by strictly complying with the principle of "three Li, three Zhi, three Gui (Li, Zhi and Gui are measurement units of ancient China)" respectively. In addition, the space of the old city layout, public buildings and dwelling courtyards were also deeply influenced by the etiquette culture. The Chinese etiquette culture and ideology has been complied with throughout the space layout design and the construction of the city, reflecting a theme of "five positions and four directions", "making the center outstanding", "strengthening the main axis", and "facing south as honor in the city's space organization and representation, which can be seen as a live fossil representing the influences of Chinese Etiquette Culture on city constructions in ancient China.
