Co-auteur: Ling Wang. Samenvatting Science and Civilisation in China Volume V Part 6 is the first of the three parts dealing with the arts of war in ancient and medieval China.
The present volume opens with an introduction on Chinese attitudes to warfare in general. Four major sections follow: on the making and use of simple bows; on the crossbow, the standard weapon of the Han armies, and its introduction to the Western world; on the pre-gunpowder forms of artillery, including the invention of the trebuchet; and on the art of siege warfare in which the Mohists were particularly interested.
There is a good deal of material on siege-warfare available, and this final section is a substantial one, covering all aspects in detail. Recensie s 'For this immense and astonishing work of erudition no praise can be too high Smart, Nature ' New Scientist 'Needham and his distinguished collaborators deserve unqualified praise for their labours, extending over many years Michaelis, Interdisciplinary Science Reviews 'Perhaps the greatest single act of historical synthesis and intercultural communication ever attempted by one man.
The Times Literary Supplement 'The present text can hardly fail to intrigue anyone hooked on 'war books', weaponry, military tactics and strategy, siege warfare and the like. In tracing the chronicles of Chinese development, Needham holds up the mirror to our own world, informs us of possibilities we never considered, or options of which we have only just become aware. No-one did more than Joseph Needham to open our eyes to the wonders of Chinese civilisation. This book is essential reading for everyone interested in ancient and medieval European warfare as well as for those who study the art of war in China.
Robert P. Yates reminds us how much the excavations of recent decades have changed our understanding of ancient China Yates explicates incomplete or intractable texts as thoroughly as possible, and his tendency to speculate is balanced by his excellent use of written and archaeological sources Retrieved Journal of World History.
