What I am Reading – 10/11/2016

Catherine Churchman, The People between the Rivers: The Rise and Fall of a Bronze Drum Culture, 200–750 CE (Roman & Littlefield, 2016).

“This fundamental study provides the first comprehensive history of the lands between the Red and Pearl Rivers in southern China and the people who lived there over a span of a thousand years. Bringing to life the mysterious early people known as Li and Lao who inhabited the area, Churchman explores their custom of casting large bronze kettledrums.”

For a review that outlines the significance of The People between the Rivers see Liam Kelley’s review.
