GREAT CIVILISATIONS CHINA a Vintage Ladybird Book from the Adventures from History Series 561. First Edition Matte Hardback 1979.
"One human being in every four lives in China, and many other people of Chinese descent are spread round the rest of the world too."
"Throughout it's long history, the civilisation of China has been very different from that of the West, the cultures differing in the past just as much as the politics do now."
"This book is about old China, and about some of the ways that Chinese ideas and inventions have affected us despite these differences."
