Take an incredible journey to today’s China and beyond from the comfort of your armchair. Seven hundred never-seen-before photographs combine to create a revealing portrait of this extraordinary country. Explore every aspect of the world's oldest civilization; from China’s stunning landscapes, extraordinary 4,000 year history to ancient philosophical traditions which are still alive today. Find out what it’s like to live there now and meet with people from all walks of Chinese society. Plus, take a “virtual tour” of some of the country’s most incredible architecture and explore the exteriors and interiors of its ancient and modern buildings. With a sumptuous deep red and gold silk cover this makes a lovely keepsake. 'Aesthetically bamboozling, this superb coffee-table heavyweight crammed with amazing photos and colour illustrations is Dorling Kindersley at its best.' Good Book Guide
