Take two: China; A History in Objects, Jessica Harrison-Hall

For a full review see my Patreon

I bought this book at Abbey’s in the CBD at the same time as the Wagner book and the one on the Emperor Augustus. A book with a title like this needs little introduction, so I’ll be brief. One thing to note about this book is the carefulness of the commentary regarding the CCP. I suspect that this kind of soft diplomacy is institutional – the book was produced by the British Museum – in order to secure the future cooperation of authorities in China.
