Wonderful for academics and lay persons alike

This is a great overview of the history of China. Professor Andrew R. Wilson is a very knowledgable and engaging lecturer. I recommend this course for anyone with an interest in China.

Highly recommended!

This course was both engaging and informative. As a high school history teacher I appreciated the professor's approach to the subject and his obvious enthusiasm. I only wish there had been more lectures in the course!

Clear and entertaining history

I knew very little about Chinese history, and Prof. Wilson provided a clear and entertaining introduction. I like his emphasis on the lives of common people. He doesn't get bogged down in dates and wars as some historians do. Instead he presents an overview by general subjects that also has vivid details. He puts events in political and geographic context. Makes me want to learn more about China, and even take a trip to see some of the areas he mentions. Highly recommended!
