Parts of this were interesting and others were rather dry. It was discouraging to realize how many innovations came about due to warfare. Also, women were basically completely absent from this work. I believe there was one passing mention of them as consumers of silk and that was it. A few interesting tidbits in here, but nothing overly special. The tone was more encyclopedic than narrative.

I'm sending a box of surprise RABCKs that I thought you might enjoy. As always, no pressure to read them if they are not for you... do as you please with them! I thought there was a chance you might like to "geek out" with this one. ;-)

The box of books arrived safely today - a lovely surprise; many thanks! From the title I assumed it was something New-Age-ish, but the subtitle clarifies things: "Ancient Chinese Science and Technology"
