Most histories approach China through the story of its dynasties, its struggle to defend its borders and its internal politics. Harry G. Gelber's The Dragon and the Foreign Devils is the first history for the general reader to tell the story of China from the outside as well as from the inside. His grand narrative explores the developing relationship involved, from the incursions into China of steppe horsemen around 200 BC to Genghis Khan's Mongol Empire, from the arrival of Marco Polo to the Opium wars, and from the Communist Revolution of 1949 to the Tiananmen Square protest in 1989, ending with China's recent resurgence as a dynamic economy and a powerful international player.
