by Miriam Clifford, Cathy Giangrande, Antony White
This book is a must-have companion for anyone interested in discovering more about China's rich heritage; with over 500 color images, wonderfully descriptive text, quick glance information including 'highlights' and 'key' objects, and all details of address and opening hours. Providing comprehensive descriptions not only of well-known attractions, such as the Forbidden City and the Shanghai Museum, this guide also covers some of the less known and more remote archaeological sites, such as the Linzi Museum (where over 600 horses were buried alive at the whim of an ancient king), the Museum of Oriental Musical Instruments and the Chinese Traditional Medicine Museum. Covering China's most famous and respected museums, the book also covers many smaller, lesser-known museums, ranging from art and archaeology to science and technology, history and politics - all of which combine to provide the reader with a deep understanding of China's past and present.
