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 Pagodas explains the development of pagodas in China, which originated in India and came to China with the spread of Buddhism. Ancient pagodas, such as the stocky Songyue Pagoda, the upright Woodent Pagoda in Yingxian County, the grand Giant Wild Goose Pagoda, the elegant Dingzhou Pagoda, the simple Three Pagodas in Dali and others all attract people with their unique artistic charm and deep cultural deposits.
