The series was conceived by British historian Denis C.

Twitchett and American historian John K. Fairbank in the late s, and publication began in The complete History will contain 15 volumes made up of 17 books not including the Cambridge History of Ancient China with volumes 5 and 9 consisting of two books each.

In this version, the map of the Ming empire in the original was replaced by a more extensive map from The Historical Atlas of China , while the other maps were used unchanged.

The volumes of the series are as follows: The Cambridge History of Ancient China: This book provides a survey of the institutional and cultural history of China up to the unification of China by Qin Shi Huang in BC.

And Kwang-chih Chang covers the prehistory of China, concentrating on the archaeological evidence but looking also at the debates over the historicity of the Xia dynasty.

This provides an important historiographical and methodological balance. A chapter by Robert Bagley on "Shang archaeology", for example, tries to avoid the biases of traditional history, presenting a fascinating twenty page introduction to the archaeology of bronze metallurgy and using that to highlight the breadth of Chinese culture outside the Shang areas, in the Yangzi valley, Sichuan, and the north.


In contrast to this, David Keightley's chapter on the Shang focuses on written inscriptions bronzes and oracle bones and what they tell us about politics, religion, and society in the nascent dynastic state.

The historical chapters generally avoid becoming enmeshed in the details of particular wars, successions, and the like, addressing instead larger scale social and administrative changes. Edward Shaughnessy probes the origins of the Western Zhou and their conquest of the Shang, then describes their subsequent history.

Though cautious about the use of historical detail from later texts, he highlights the significance of Western Zhou political theory for subsequent Chinese historiography. Cho-yun Hsu describes the multi-state system that evolved in the Spring and Autumn period with recognition of a shifting Ba or "senior state" and sketches its social, administrative, and economic developments.

And for the Warring States period Mark Lewis focuses on the institutional and military development of the various states and their consolidation into progressively larger units, laying the groundwork for the imperial unification. The chapters on material culture are longer than their historical counterparts, largely due to the space taken up by illustrations. Jessica Rawson begins with a general introduction to Western Zhou archaeology, then proceeds from pre-Conquest Shaanxi and the uncertainty about Zhou origins down to the Ritual Revolution, providing details of key sites.

Lothar von Falkenhausen covers late Bronze Age archaeology, describing finds from cemeteries and tombs in the different states and regional cultures.

A central government had now gained full control of the Chinese mainland, thus achieving the national unity so long desired. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification eg.
