Profusely iilustrated. Map endpapers. A quarter of the people on earth live in China, yet to the West it has remained a mystery. The Heart of the Dragon opens the door on this most secret of continents, and illuminates as has never before been possible. The book has been written bt the writer and producer Alasdair Clayre and a team of film-makers led by Peter Montagnon, producer of the famous series Civilisation. In 1981 they won an agreement with the Chinese Government that gave them access to the most far flung places, and to the most closely guarded recesses, institutions and archives in China. They were also assisted by sinologists from all over the world. With these remarkable resources they have painted the most comprehensive portrait of the Chinese ever made.
