For the Chinese, the drive toward growing political and economic power is part of an ongoing effort to restore China''s past greatness and remove the lingering memories of history''s humiliations. This widely praised book explores the 1500OCo1800 period before China''s decline, when the country was viewed as a leading world culture and power. D. E. Mungello argues that this earlier era, ironically, may contain more relevance for today than the more recent past. This fully revised fourth edition retains the clear and concise quality of its predecessors, while drawing on a wealth of new research on Sino-Western history and the increasing contributions of Chinese historians. Building on the author''s decades of research and teaching, this compelling book illustrates the vital importance of history to readers trying to understand ChinaOCOs renewed rise."
