    This is a delicious read that visually walks the reader through

    This is a delicious read that visually walks the reader through initial topical chapters followed by detailed regional exploration.  Landforms, cultural insights, and a good balance of history and current issues synthesize a great body of knowledge that will satisfy  an educated traveler.  I wish a book like this was available when I took Chinese history in college.  I would comment that the author has a bit of a feminist viewpoint.
