    About this book


With the rapid development of its economy, China is getting more and more influential in the world. People all over the world are casting their eyes on this great old nation and their interest to learn more about China's past and present is growing. They want to find out what has been driving this nation to develop at such a great speed. Being an old country with 5,000 years of history, China is an important birthplace of human civilization. The great inventions of China, such as paper, gunpowder, the compass, the technology of printing, along with china and silk, have spread to the world and enhanced the cultural exchange between China and other nations; the poems, painting, music, dance and drama created by Chinese people all express their love for nature and their emphasis on ethics and moral obligations, which constitute the essence of Chinese culture and art; the traditional architecture of China, such as ancient cities, palaces, temples, common residences and classical gardens, has reflected the Chinese culture and spirit of different eras in history; and the all-embracing attitude Chinese people take towards foreign cultures has further developed and promoted Chinese culture. The world needs to know China, while China also needs to show the world the splendor of its culture. This large-scale DVD product, A Kaleidoscope of Chinese Culture, gives a comprehensive introduction on Chinese culture. This DVD series covers the quintessence of Chinese culture, including Chinese civilization and art, Chinese customs, Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism, different ethnic groups, and famous places of historic interest and scenic beauty. With brief and vivid commentary, and clear and beautiful pictures, it brings readers to the core of Chinese culture in a convenient and direct way. It is our sincere hope that this product will set you on an exciting journey of Chinese culture filled with pleasant surprises and help you to learn more about China.
