30-Second Ancient China unlocks the secrets of its Bronze Age glories and offers summaries of everything.
In the West, the story of Ancient China is less familiar to us than that of Ancient Egypt or Rome, but it is no less absorbing, and its rollcall of achievements is easily as impressive. 30-Second Ancient China unlocks the secrets of its Bronze Age glories and offers summaries of everything from the lost cities of the Zhou kings and the elaborate oracle-bone rituals that were practiced at their courts to the exquisite bronze vessels that gave the age its name, and the birth of Confucianism. Add topics dealing with everyday life in Ancient China, and succinct biographies of some powerful figures from Wu Ding, king of the Shang, to Sun Tzu, author of The Art of War, the first ever treatise on military strategy and 30-Second Ancient China becomes the perfect introduction to one of the great ancient civilizations.
