The Great Wall : China against the world, 1000 BC-AD 2000 by Julia Lovell( Book )
33 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 1,495 libraries worldwide
This is a history of the epic story of the Great Wall of China that guides the reader through the conquests and cataclysms of the Chinese empire, from the second millennium B.C. to present day. Over 2,200 years old and 4,300 miles long, the Great Wall of China has made an overwhelmingly confident physical statement about the country it spans: China's age-old sense of being an advanced civilization anxious to draw a clear line between itself and the barbarians at its borders. But behind the Wall's intimidating exterior, and the myths that have clustered around it, is a complex history that has both defined and undermined China. It is this history that the author explores here, an epic tale that stretches over two millennia as it follows the rise and fall of the great Chinese ruling dynasties. Full of astonishing details and extraordinary characters from emperors to engineers, statesmen to soldiers, this book helps those who want to understand China's past, present, and future

I love dollars and other stories of China by Wen Zhu( Book )
18 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 507 libraries worldwide
"In five richly imaginative novellas and a short story, Zhu Wen depicts the violence, chaos, and dark comedy of China in the post-Mao era. A frank reflection of the seamier side of his nation's increasingly capitalist society, Zhu Wen's fiction offers an audaciously plainspoken account of the often hedonistic individualism that is feverishly taking root. Set against the mundane landscapes of contemporary China-a worn Yangtze River vessel, cheap diners, a failing factory, a for-profit hospital operating by dated socialist norms-Zhu Wen's stories zoom in on the often tragicomic minutiae of everyday life in this fast-changing country. With subjects ranging from provincial mafiosi to nightmarish families and oppressed factory workers, his claustrophobic narratives depict a spiritually bankrupt society, periodically rocked by spasms of uncontrolled violence. For example, I Love Dollars, a story about casual sex in a provincial city whose caustic portrayal of numb disillusionment and cynicism, caused an immediate sensation in the Chinese literary establishment when it was first published. The novella's loose, colloquial voice and sharp focus on the indignity and iniquity of a society trapped between communism and capitalism showcase Zhu Wen's exceptional ability to make literary sense of the bizarre, ideologically confused amalgam that is contemporary China."--Publisher's description
