THE CIVILIZATION OF CHINA
by HERBERT A. GILES, M.A., LL.D.
Professor of Chinese in the University of Cambridge, And sometime H.B.M. Consul at Ningpo
The aim of this work is to suggest a rough outline of Chinese civilization from the earliest times down to the present period of rapid and startling transition.
It has been written, primarily, for readers who know little or nothing of China, in the hope that it may succeed in alluring them to a wider and more methodical survey.
