About the Authors
  • The emergence of bronze ware forms a crucial chapter in the history of human civilization. Although not the first country to enter the Bronze Age, China enjoys a unique position in world history because of the great variety of innovative and beautiful bronze ware that has been unearthed on China's vast territory. These artifacts provide a window into the art and culture of ancient China. Chinese Bronze Ware introduces the reader to this magnificent culture with thorough discussion of the context and significance of bronze production, vivid descriptions and full-color illustrations.

    • An accessible introduction to the splendid bronze culture of ancient China
    • Written by a Chinese expert whose work is not widely available outside of China
    • Full colour illustrations support the discussion throughout
