Few nations have as long and intricate a history as China. Despite a world grown increasingly smaller, China is still seen as a faraway, exotic land, shrouded in secrets, veiled with the mysteries of ages past. For most of its 5,000-year existence, China has been the largest, most populous, wealthiest, and mightiest nation on Earth - facts left unexplored in the history courses most of us in the West have taken. It is essential that Westerners understand where China has been in order to anticipate its future.
