    Some parts were very enjoyable but it's of a 'manual' than I realized I would recommend a different book unless you are a student in need of primary source material Essentially this book is many little summarizations of different aspects of Chinese history followed by long lists of primary and secondary source material for student use I give it 3 stars for thoroughness but would have given less for pleasure of reading

    This book is essential for any sinologist or academic working on China Wilkinson outlines key historical themes and matters such as understanding Chinese names weights and measures currency time telling and cuisine to name only a select few Of particular importance to the researcher is that each chapter has an extensive list of sources to which the researcher can go; also he organises key sources by dynasty or historical period In all an essential volume in the sinologist's library
