Read in July, 1998

My favorite entry in this series, in part because most of the material covered -- ancient Chinese history; early Indian "history" -- was completely new to me. The stories he includes are fascinating, particularly the rise of China. I also loved the perennial theme of Indian history as one where so many people were seeking explanations to the universe, our place in it, the cosmic questions. And how history believes these many explorations into the spiritual realm may have come about. This book is highly recommended to folks who have no idea where to begin exploring the history of the Eastern Civilizations.
