Qin Shi Huangdi (秦始皇帝), the first emperor of unified China, is best known today for the thousands of terracotta warriors buried near his mausoleum. These three titles cover diverse aspects of his life, death, and legacy. While Wood’s book is the much more absorbing read, Man’s includes two sections of beautiful color plates. The First Emperor: China's Terracotta Army, published to accompany an exhibition at the British Museum, is lavishly illustrated with photos and diagrams, and gives the most insight into the construction and meaning of the tomb sites.
