316 China Review International: Vol. 4, No. 2, Fall 1997 tion presented in the main body of the text. They effectively enable readers to visualize historical events and issues, and will certainly be helpful to novice students of Chinese history who are trying to synthesize the considerable quantity of complex information presented in the textual portion of the book. The Cambridge Illustrated History of China provides an excellent introduction to the study of China and Chinese civilization. It offers a straightforward, yet complex, account of historical events and issues that is well supported and augmented by the supplementary special-topic sections and illustrations. More advanced scholars may enjoy Professor Ebrey's lucid synthesis and analysis of familiar history, but because of the necessarily general level of the discussion and the lack of footnotes, this book will probably not serve them as a reference book. For teachers and students of Chinese history, however, or for people who are interested in pursuing Chinese history on their own, this book will be an invaluable instructional resource. In the foreword, Kwang-Ching Liu expresses his belief diat this book will eventually be "regarded as a classic." Given the many outstanding qualities of the book noted
