There is much to be learned in the modern world from a knowledge of Imperial China, its various dynasties, and most importantly from its amazing characters and figures that appear from all classes of society to change the course of their nation’s future. China’s early history, the importance of its mighty rivers and geography, its key terminus on the famed Silk Road, its position on mercantilism and globalized trade, its changing faces of power and effects on the world, its civil service exams and the effects upon society, and many of facets all play an important role in the complex story of this country. To know China today, it is imperative to know this history. This lecture series, led by Andrew R. Wilson, Ph.D., a professor at the U.S. Naval War College, goes a long way to gaining an understand of all of these drivers of Chinese culture and history. While his presentation style is at times dry and stiff, the content of the lectures is outstanding. Recommended for all who wish to gain more insight into this nation.
