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 Sports looks at the ways in which Chinese sports are closely intertwined with political-economic development as well as scientific and cultural advances of society. In primitive society, basic athletic skills people used in their daily lives for production purposes such as running, jumping, climbing, and throwing, could be considered sports in their infancy. By the Song and Yuan dynasties, the development of the commercial economy further popularized the already widespread sports by commercializing them. Chinese sports continually present new images to people all over the world.
