Summary

Daniel Waley's highly enjoyable book has been revised, updated, expanded and reset. In its new format it remains the best short introduction to the subject in English. The new features of the third edition include a chronological gazetteer of the major cities and towns; a chapter on the historiography of the subject; and a much fuller bibliography.
