In this fascination book, Edward Capon uses the lives of the Jade Princes, discovered during the excavation of the Man Ch'eng tombs in 1968, to provide an amazing account of China in the age of the first of the great ruling dynasties. He examines wars and politics that gave birth to the Han state, the triumph of Conficianism, the ritual magnificence of the Han Court, the rhythms of the countryside, the tramp of armies from the Great Wall of China in the north to the Gulf of Tonkin fifteen hundred miles to the south, and the flowering of the arts. He traces also how the Confucian beliefs adopted by the Han Dynasty became part of the culture and still remain essential to an understanding of modern Chinese society.
