The Bronze Age state of the Western Zhou represented a ground-breaking period in Chinese culture and civilization. This book addresses the complex relationship between geography and political power within the context of the crisis and fall of that state between 1045SH771 B.C. Drawing on the latest archaeological discoveries, the book shows how inscribed bronze vessels can be used to reveal changes in the political space of the period, and explores literary and geographical evidence to produce a coherent understanding of the Bronze Age past.
