    About this book

If it is true that the form of tombs and burial objects reflect a society, China's imperial tombs and mausoleums can be regarded as inverse images of its ancient society. This book contains a large amount of historical material describing the development, types and chronologically arranged to present and explain in detail the construction of underground palaces and the characteristics and artistic styles of their surface structures. Also given special note are the tombs of Confucius and Guan Yu: Though not of aristocratic origin they hold specific social positions in China's history. Along with a comprehensive listing of more than four hundred imperial tombs and mausoleum, there are over one hundred rare photographs selected to reflect the ageless development and dramatic nature of China's imperial tombs and mausoleums.
