UNDERSTANDING CHINA THROUGH COMICS

UNDERSTANDING CHINA THROUGH COMICS

What lies at the heart of Chinese culture? How have the Chinese people and their government changed over time? Author and artist Jing Liu combines stark black-and-white drawings with a storyteller's feel for pace and plot to depict storylines ranging from the political and economic to the cultural and personal. The result is not just a recounting of China's history, but works that leave readers with a nuanced understanding of the forces that shaped—and continue to shape—the country. "[Brings] Chinese history to readers in a more clear, fun, and accessible way than it's ever been done before," raves a teacher at the International School of Beijing. Grades 6 and up. Stone Bridge Press. Approximately 150 pages each. ©2016–17.
