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 the Folk Houses discusses the many different styles of Chinese homes. In China, a country with a vast land and miscellaneous ethnic groups, the residential buildings are diversified. Residences can be divided into different types, including courtyards, pile dwellings, cave dwellings, earthen buildings, yurts, blockhouses and Ayiwang residences (culture-associated residences in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region).
