Abstract:

In 800 expert-written articles, The Berkshire Encyclopedia of China provides unrivaled insight into Chinese history and culture today, including everything from "Adoption" and "Banking" to "Wound Literature" and "Zhou Dynasty." It has been compiled with strict rules about balance and objectivity by a publisher committed to providing truly global perspectives that will empower 21st-century students, global citizens, and leaders in business and government. The five-volume Berkshire Encyclopedia of China is truly a 21st-century work with its coverage of environmental issues, global economics, online communications, and the latest political developments. While these volumes include many articles about Chinas earliest historygoing back 5,000 years and even further into the pastthe Encyclopedia of China is focused on the events, concepts, and people that matter today. The authors of its 800 articles are scholars at major Chinese and Western universities and research institutes. The accessibly written and lavishly illustrated articles range from 600 to 6,000 words. Article titles appear in English and in Chinese with pinyin transliterations and tones to help those studying the language, while primary text sidebars add historical perspective. The Berkshire Encyclopedia of China provides unrivaled insight into Chinas past, present, and future. The Berkshire Encyclopedia of China is specifically intended to help students and professionals who need to improve their knowledge of the arts, belief systems, business, communications, demographics, education, law and politics, minority groups, natural resources, regional and international relations, social welfare, and technology. The Encyclopedia of China is extensively illustrated from museum and library archives and a wide variety of other sources, including the extensive collection of photographer and Chinese art specialist Joan Lebold Cohen. - Publisher.
