But behind the walls intimidating exterior - and the myths that have built up around it - is a complex history that has both defined and undermined China.

Author Julia Lovell has written a new and important history of the Great Wall that guides the reader through the conquests and cataclysms of the Chinese empire, from the second millennium B.C. to the present day. The Great Wall is a tale that stretches over two millennia as it follows the rise and fall of the great Chinese ruling dynasties. Full of astonishing details and extraordinary characters - from emperors to engineers, statesmen, to soldiers - this is essential reading for anyone wino wants to understand Chinas past, present, and future.
