History of Chinese Civilization, a series of bilingual books, will win over its readers with interesting and inspiring historical facts and stories, told in accurate yet vivid, simple yet thought-provoking words. With carefully chosen and arranged texts written both in Chinese and English, the books will help both westerners and Chinese readers learn more about the language as well as the history and culture of China. Many colorful illustrations throughout the series will give readers a better understanding of those facts and stories, which tell them about not only history but also how to learn from history.

History of Gardens looks at classical Chinese gardens as an essential part of traditional Chinese culture. They feature rocks, water, plants, and architecture, and they embrace the ideas and beliefs of Confucianism, Buddhism, and Taoism. Under the influence of poetry and paintings, gardens reflect Chinese people’s understanding of nature and the world.
