About

Overview

This entertaining yet informative book details practices that may seem peculiar to today's students, while respectfully contextualizing another culture and time, especially one as ancient, rich, and foundational as that of ancient China. Readers are drawn in by the sometimes distasteful details--the fun "gross-out" factor--but also gain an appreciation of the inventiveness, sophistication, and practicality of the ancient Chinese.
