Philip Wilkinson

Rising in Tibet and flowing over 3,900 miles, the Yangtze is the world's third longest river. Here, Philip Wilkinson explores the Yangtze's hold over Chinese and Westerners alike and its role in history, from the Three Kingdoms to Mao's Long March. He also examines the river's wildlife, its industries and the construction of the colossal and controversial Three Gorges Dam. Illustrated with beautiful photographs, maps and a time line, this remarkable book portrays a river as varied and mysterious as China itself.
