About This Book

For thousand of years, the people of China have been enthralled and entertained by stories of real historical figures and events of the past, and have retold the stories until they have become legendary. These tales take the reader back 3000 years and are as dazzling and enchanting as any fairytale. Nineteen of the most important and fascinating tales were translated from their original Chinese for this two-volume set of Chinese Historical Stories. Volume 2 is full of tales from China's Imperial period, when Emperors ruled the unified nation, from 221 BC until 1911 AD. These 2000 years saw many changes from both within the country and from the outside world, and these stories reflect the many facets of Chinese life during times of war and times of prosperity and peace.
