Abstract
 
Description
China in the World (book and CD-ROM set) explores China's captivating history since the 17th century through engrossing historical narrative and hundreds of primary sources. Unit overviews, introductory essays, and time lines provide the context for appreciating the events and implications of China's complex history. A wealth of primary sources - imperial edicts, sea captains' letters, short stories, poetry, essays, posters, photographs, and cartoons - allows students to explore events from multiple perspectives and through many genres. Primary source-based activities foster analytical thinking, hone verbal skills, and ask students to consider history as a complicated, messy, and fascinating subject. Written by teachers for teachers and students, China in the World serves as a perfect companion to standard world history texts and courses in world literature. It is also ideal for courses on East Asian studies, the history of China, or Chinese language and culture at the high school and college level. The emphasis on document analysis makes it an especially valuable resource for AP or IB courses*. The dual-platform CD includes hundreds of full-length documents, full-color images, maps, a bibliography, glossary, and more, serving as a convenient reference in the classroom or at home. *AP is a registered trademark of the College Board which was not involved in the production of, and does not endorse, this product.
