A very nice copy. Jacket lightly toned. 1999 Large Hardcover. 144 pp. Part of the Myth & Mankind series. A dramatic series that captures, culture by culture, the information that never makes it into the history books: strange stories, mystic rites, angry gods, vision quests. China is among the world's oldest civilizations and home to many of the earliest achievements in the history of humankind. Until the beginning of the twentieth century, the Chinese emperor ruled by Heavenly Mandate as the divinely appointed Son of Heaven, intermediary between the world of gods and mortals--Heaven and Earth--in an unbroken dynastic tradition some 4,000 years old. The origins of China's imperial rulers lie in a time when the worlds of men and gods were closer than they are now. Chinese mythology relates these origins and those of China, together with the many gifts given to its people by the gods. It was these rich stories which subsequently inspired and shaped the three major religions found in China today. Keywords: FOLKLORE MYTHOLOGY HISTORY MYTH LAND OF DRAGON CHINESE CHINA ASIAN
