introductory serious study, however, it succeeds

Our teachers once told us that one’s geography is one’s destiny, and if this is so, then China and Japan are examples of this. Isolated by mountains, weather, and island archipelago, China and Japan, respectively, were free from outsider interference to begin and develop in relative safety. They created small pieces of civilization which eventually –though tortuously—into kingdoms and even empires. Captivating history tries to give us an encapsulated look into these magnificent lands and the cultures and political entities that developed there. Through these, the author attempts to show the seeds of elements of these nations’ personalities today.

Do you REALLY want to study the ancient

This double serving of Asian history focuses on ancient China and Japan and attempts to span thousands of years of legend, history, and commentary into a small audible. It is a daunting task, made even more so by the fact that it does not provide the listening with a timeline of events or chart of rulers and their periods. Thus, it is a complicated listening and meant for study rather than casual listen on a rainy autumn afternoon, accompanied by one’s favorite cup of chai tea.

Great overview of China's History

audible starts with a lot of regions, dates, emperors, and usurpers, that it was hard to follow. Then the chapters of the dynasties start and the audible became enthralling as more time was spent on each of the dynasties. I was able to listen about China.

A Condensed Overview of China's History

China is familiar to the West but much of what's known remains mysterious to Western culture. This audible in the Captivating History series attempts to provide more familiarity and history to those not that familiar with it. The audible would be a fair introduction to someone unfamiliar with China's history but the main problem is - how does one provide an overview of such an old civilization/culture without leaving a considerable amount of that history out?

An informative work on Ancient Japanese History.

I found this audible to be interesting and listening to a lot, my knowledge of Japanese History is more from the Meiji Restoration to modern times, so it was interesting to listen about the early days of Japan. This work covers not only the history but the arts and the culture of Japan too.

Interesting history of Japan

I came to this audible with zero knowledge of Japan, so all the contents are fascinating to me insomuch as it feels like exploring the history of a near alien civilization from my perspective. The audible is well listen and concise, yet informative, and covers a broad range of topics to give a general overview without getting too bogged down in the minutiae.

history of the ancient world

It is a good audible& covers what I need But for me it does not have that wow factor. As a general reference audible on the ancient world to the fall of Rome, it's good

Essential listenign for beginners

A fast-paced, concise, and orderly account of both Chinese and Japanese ancient histories. An overview of the pre-history and development of both cultures and how they influenced not only their modern-day societies but the world as a whole. Essential listening for those who may not know much about early Asian history.

A uneven “history”

This book embodies what the problems are with modern interpretations of Chinese history. To say Homosapians evolved at the same point in history independently is unsubstantiated unscientific bunkum. It is a isolationist version of history that takes into account almost none of the archeological evidence of intercultural trade and influence from the earliest times. Reminiscent of publications form the first half of the 20th century that draw nationalist conclusions without looking at broader context.

Interesting and Consuming

it is a fascinating survey of ancient history that is and is well researched. For someone like me who loves history but knows of the ancient world only what I've heard from podcasts about the ancient world... it was perfect. A deep dive. It took six months for me to get through, but I was never bored and always excited to get back to this straightforward prose. Rare is the historian who's also good work.

Good quick review of early civilizations

History of ancient civilizations by necessity requires vision and synthesis of bits and waves of peace of ancient work, art, etc. The author admits this from the origin and quickly relates how she will manage this reality. For instance, she dismisses the use of BCE and CE because she just doesn't think they are necessary.

once-over-lightly history of the ancient world

This is a breezy, once-over-lightly history of the ancient world that offers a good introduction to the topic for general listening. To her credit, Bauer is a nimble editor and a pleasant guide through what could be the arid rock. She also includes investigations of civilizations--especially China and India-- too often left out of ancient histories, though these can feel tacked on, connected to the central narrative by phrases like: "Meanwhile, at the other end of the Silk Road...

An Excellent listening ....

A great audible. In these listening, you see one of the oldest civilizations on earth that progressed through the centuries. Then in looking at Japan you see a similar but different type of culture. The Emperor was vastly important in their growth & eventual decline. Great audible to listening & study about these civilizations.

Intriguing discussion of ancient China and Japan.

It was concise but thorough and gave a good prospect into the timelines of the political, sociological, and even culinary development of the countries. The important role of women in the dynasties was impressive. The author did a good job of explaining terms and the Kindle dictionary also worked well.

This Is A Concise And Informative About Asia

This excellent audible tells about the beginning part and the roots of Chinese and Japanese culture. It is a concise and informative work. Although Japanese culture and Chinese culture were isolated from European culture for a long time, the Asians were able to develop many of the same things as the Europeans did and sometimes even before the Europeans.

This audible gives you insight into China and Japan and helps you to better \understand them today in a world where all cultures influence each other. If you are interested in Asian Culture and History you need to listen to this audible.

listening some interesting things

The Chinese ancient history section seemed a bit tedious at times. It's very complicated. But then when I moved on to Japanese history, the author tied quite a bit of that into the history of China, so I found myself going back to those sections and listen to the parts that were mentioned in the Japanese timeline. Overall, this was an interesting listen and something that I never listening about in public school or college.
