Synopsis

From its earliest beginnings to its current attempts to be recognized as a major international city, the history of Beijing is a fascinating journey. Three experts in Chinese history take readers along for the ride, showing its evolution from Kublai Khan's seat of power to the capital of the Ming Dynasty, remaining the capital of China up to today. Beijing highlights the current developments in the city as it adjusts to the skyrocketing growth of the Chinese economy and readies itself for the 2008 Summer Olympics. Focusing on the lives of ordinary people as well as rulers, the authors highlight the controversial destruction of Beijing's historic districts and the construction of Olympic venues. Vivid maps, paintings, and photographs detail the more than 600-year evolution of this unique and vibrant city.
