Library Journal Review

Gr 5-10-An attractive, insightful book with a broad scope. Chapters cover China's global importance, geography, plants and wildlife, history, government, food and transportation, people and language, religion, the arts, and children. Full-color photographs appear throughout the text and a variety of color maps provide orientation and clarification. To organize and coherently explain such a massive topic as China's vast history is no small feat, yet with clarity and thoroughness, "A People of History" clearly demonstrates that the author has risen to this task. Other chapters are equally well done. Sidebars highlight people, places, and aspects of Chinese culture such as the changing role of women. A "To Find Out More" section includes nonfiction books, Web sites, and organizations and embassies. Students will glean a great deal of information from this well-organized, straightforward title.-Alida F. Given, Fairhope Intermediate School, AL (c) Copyright 2010.
