    A graphic account of Chinese history. If you've been around here for a while, you know that I always wanted to study Chinese history, and got a little bitter because I couldn't ever take a class on it. Well, Jing Liu heard my cries of woe and answered them with this. I do wish the fourth volume had gone on through the Communist years, but I understand that probably wasn't politically possible. The actual series is called Understanding China Through Comics, and it's informative and easily understo A graphic account of Chinese history.

The actual series is called Understanding China Through Comics, and it's informative and easily understood. I'm really enjoying learning about China so far! Now, this is very outline history-- there's no way you could cover more than two thousand years of history in a hundred and sixty-eight pages otherwise-- but that's exactly what I need, a sort of fleshed-out timeline that will give me a handle on the overall story before I can dive in deeper. If you, like me, are annoyingly ignorant of Chinese history, this series is a great place to start.

    The Boxer rebellion was a terrible situation for all involved.
