Reviewed in the United States on 5 December 2020
I bought this book because I was looking to learn more about ancient China beyond the basics.
As expected, the book itself is very sturdy. I was also pleasantly surprised at the high quality content in this book. Instead of just discussing the major historical events in China, it also went deeper into the lesser known events. The books includes everything from prehistory up to the Qing dynasty (the last dynasty). It also gives in depth descriptions and explanations of ancient Chinese culture and traditions. The book is also full of high quality, colorful images that are very detailed.

Some contents of the book include:
The silk road
Ancient Chinese Medicine
Lesser known dynasties (e.g. Xi Xia Dynasty, Xin Dynasty)
Information about all emperors of a dynasty (as far as I can tell)
Information on religion in China
Court systems of ancient China.

This is a very detailed book on ancient China. It covers everything I can think of. It's a wonderful choice for anyone who would like to learn more about Chinese culture or history.

EDIT
There is one fault that I have found. This book does not contain any maps. If you would like a book with visuals of where dynasties or cities were located and how big they were, this would not be the book for you. It does, however, contain descriptions of location in text.
