Books on the Song Dynasty


Historumites I need your help.


I require information concerning Chinese History in particular the Song Dynasty. That or something covering Tang-Ming.

I have read a few general histories and bits and pieces here and there, but as an area of research it is something I am quite ignorant about.

Do you have any recommendations?

Re: Books on the Song Dynasty


In English? that might be tough, I suggest Ray Huang's - China : A marco history as a good opening for most semi-academic oriented studies but the details can be difficult to understand if you don't already have a reasonable grasp on what happened, for a more general overview obviously starting with wiki is alright or you could try the Cambridge history of China.

It would help to know what direction your trying to learn about.

Social Cultural aspects of the period, less political dimensions.
