   schema:description "Lovell looks behind the modern mythology of the Great Wall, uncovering a history far more fragmented and bloody and far less illustrious than its crowds of visitors imagine today. The story of the Wall winds through that of the Chinese empire and the frontier policy that defined it. Lovell restores a human dimension to this astonishing structure, writing about the emperors who planned new phases of building, the people who constructed, lived and guarded the walls, and the millions who dies - of overwork, starvation, cold and battle. The Great Wall is an epic history which explores the conquests and cataclysms of the Chinese empire over the past 3,000 years. It is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand China's past, present and future."@en ;
