The vastness of China and the antquity of its culture have both fascinated and troubled the West since their earliest contacts. This text explores Western attitudes as they developed over trade, conflict and sometimes edgy co-existence. The account ranges from the travels of Marco Polo to China's modern place in the literature, diplomacy and daydreams of the West.
