The Chinese Experience
[1898800499]
$24.95 $16.95

Author: Dawson, Raymond
Publisher: Pheonix Press
Year: 2005
ISBN: 1898800499
Binding: Soft Cover
Book Condition: As New
Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
Description:
New book, 318 pages. This book brings alive a civilisation in which emperors are magnified, bureaucrats satirised, women worshipped, nature adored, parting and death mourned, and war reviled. The roles of emperors at the top and of district magistrates at the bottom of the bureaucratic structure are used to explain the political process. In addition the philosophical section does not confine itself to ancient doctrines, but elucidates their lasting influences on Chinese manners and institutions, whereas social and economic life is shown to be deeply rooted in tradition.
