Common Knowledge About Chinese History (REVISED ED.) by Overseas Chinese Affairs Office

This book is dual language, English and Chinese, and as such is easier than the previous Chinese history book I finished reading. I would definitely recommend it to intermediate learners who are wanting material to practice. The book is let down a little by the English translation, and the fact that it takes the most common views of Chinese history, many of which have been disputed in modern scholarship. But it is good for learning vocabulary and practising reading. The last third was the most uninteresting for me as from 1840 on it was mostly just military history rather than social or cultural history. It is very biased, with no mention of the cultural revolution or anything, just male politicians and their importance. European and Americans are (rightly) imperialistic powers, but then when it comes to Chinese colonies, these are all part of China. The Imperial history is a bit better, with emphasis on cultural achievement as well, though this also tends to be quite biased towards the men and what it thinks westerners will be interested in. Id recommend this for very good language practice, not for learning about Chinese history.
