CHUNGWEN SHIH AND ANDREW PLAKS
THE ANNENBERG/CPB COLLECTION 1993. 60 MINUTES
China’s Cosmopolitan Age: The Tang incorporates valuable images and broad cultural and historical understandings. This videotape will enhance Asian surveys at the college level as well as term-contained Chinese history courses. For high school students the film will prove effective within both world history and world culture courses. But at neither the college nor high school level do I recommend the film’s use in its entirety; instead, the best sections (as indicated below) should be utilized as focused segments to exemplify lecture material or to provide fodder for discussion.
