Have you ever wondered about the significance of the various vibrant festivals celebrated by the Chinese people every year, or why the Chinese eat with chopsticks? How did the intricate characters of their written language come to be? Ancient Chinese thinkers like Confucius and Sunzi have left their mark on the Chinese culture, but who were they? And of course, Chinese cuisine, available in Chinese restaurants all over the world, hardly needs an introduction!

With a history going back some five thousand years and territories encompassing a vast geographical area across Asia, it is no wonder that the Chinese culture is such a kaleidoscope of multifarious ethnicities and customs.

As part of the Montage Culture series, this book takes the reader through a comprehensive and beautifully illustrated overview of the Chinese culture, covering topics from the history of the people, their lifestyle, customs and beliefs, to culinary practices and more. Such knowledge can only lead to greater cross-cultural understanding and harmony. For anyone who wants to learn more about this remarkable people, or simply sample the colourful Chinese culture, this book will be an indispensable guide!
