The five-volume Berkshire Encyclopedia of China is truly a 21st-century work with its coverage of environmental issues, global economics, online communications, and the latest political developments. While these volumes include many articles about China’s earliest history - going back 5,000 years and even further into the past - the Encyclopedia of China is focused on the events, concepts, and people that matter today. The authors of its 800 articles are scholars at major Chinese and Western universities and research institutes. The accessibly written and lavishly illustrated articles range from 600 to 6,000 words. Article titles appear in English and in Chinese with pinyin transliterations and tones to help those studying the language, while primary text sidebars add historical perspective. The Berkshire Encyclopedia of China provides unrivaled insight into China's past, present, and future.
