Praise For China: A History

"A well-written and substantiated look at the long history of China."

— School Library Connection

"An excellent resource and a beautifully presented, nuanced introduction to pre-20th-century Chinese history."

— Kirkus Reviews

"As rich as the history it relates, this book is thoroughly illustrated with artwork, maps, and photographs—most from the Field Museum Collection. As in Bardoe’s other works, the writing is lucid and thoughtful."

— School Library Journal

"Covering so much in a juvenile nonfiction work of less than 200 pages is a daunting endeavor, but Bardoe, a former senior projects manager at the museum, does her best to give a broad overview encapsulating high points of the region's accomplishment . . . Highly recommended as a way to introduce historical diversity to all collections."
