Philosophy and Religion in China, a Berkshire Essential, takes readers beyond the more familiar philosophical and religious traditions that have shaped Chinese culture from ancient to modern times to explore a wide range of thought and belief systems, from Confucianism and the role of philosophy in governance to folk religions and household deities.
Geography and Environment in China, a Berkshire Essential, introduces students to the vast diversity of China's peoples and their lands. Articles explore how the Chinese government has endeavored to bend nature to its will, how nature is responding and changing to China's rise, and how China copes with natural disasters whose intensity magnifies with respect to the vast populations they affect.
With its coverage of environmental issues, global economics, online communications, and the latest political developments, the five-volume Berkshire Encyclopedia of China is truly a 21st-century work. While these volumes include many articles about China's earliest history - going back more than 5,000 years - the Encyclopedia of China is focused on the events, concepts, and people that matter today. The authors of its 800 accessibly written and lavishly illustrated articles, which range from 600 to 6,000 words, are scholars at major Chinese and Western universities and research institutes. Article titles appear in English and in Chinese with pinyin transliterations and tones to help those studying the language, while primary text sidebars add historical perspective. The Berkshire Encyclopedia of China provides unrivaled insight into China's past, present, and future.
