History of China

The history of China is as long as it is interesting. No other country in the world can boast such a continued and sustained presence in world affairs, and one that still continues to grow today. It is this power that has drawn people from all over the world to China, from early explorers such as Marco Polo to ESL teachers today, no one seems able to resist the allure of China.

Because Chinese history is so long and detailed, we have divided up its history into two parts: Imperial and Modern. Both are equally interesting and provide insight into how to best understand and relate to China today. Enjoy!
