"From the Shang Emperor's obsessive attempts to engage the Immortals with cosmologically pleasing urban planning in the 3rd century BC, Chinese emperors have designed their various imperial capitals in ways that reveal the cultural influences of the period. The Tang capital at Chang'an betrays the creativity and cultural receptiveness that earmark the era as a literary and artistic golden age, for example, while the Forbidden City of 15th-century Beijing still stands as testament to Ming dynasty architectural virtuosity. Arthur Cotterell provides an inside view of the personalities, political and ideological tensions, and technological genius that defined the imperial cities of China."
