Overview

This richly illustrated book is the first to introduce and discuss the most important archaeological discoveries in China during the entire twentieth century. The two-volume set draws on Chinese archaeological fieldwork to address cross-disciplinary topics in archaeology, art history, epigraphy, history, and religion. Chinese archaeology has provided materials that are prompting scholars to reconstruct or rewrite China's history from the prehistoric period through the Imperial dynasties. New Perspectives on China's Past is a compendium of this breakthrough research and the global scholarship that surrounds it. With some six hundred illustrations, glossary, index, and extensive bibliography, this work will be a standard reference on Chinese archaeology in the twentieth century.

Author Biography: Xiaoneng Yang is curator of Chinese art at the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, Missouri.
