A Thousand Pieces of Gold

Author(s): Adeline Yen Mah

Non Fiction

A personal account and lively history of 1st-century China, from when most Chinese proverbs are drawn, when a scholar's conversation would be studded with appropriate sayings, and a man's status in society would be defined by his use and knowledge of proverbs. Much of this is still true today.
