Chinese festivals are deeply rooted in popular tradition and despite China's many changes they remain firmly established as part of the country's vibrant culture. Chinese Festivals introduces a representative selection of these celebrated traditions with full color illustrations, providing a flavor of the diversity and development of traditional Chinese culture.

    • An accessible introduction to the diverse and vibrant culture of Chinese festivals
    • Written by a Chinese expert whose work is not widely available outside of China
    • Full color illustrations support the discussion throughout
