    In the present time, china is one of the most developed countries in Asia and the world as well. It has gone through a very long phase to be capable of calling itself a super power. Journey of china is thousands of years old. Before the existence of Xia dynasty, china was nothing as a united empire. Most parts of the modern china were ruled by different emperors. It was Xia dynasty, who took the job of uniting various parts of and forming a huge empire. In their period, china was considered one of the most gigantic empires in the world. However, it was nothing compared to modern china. In the ruling periods of Ming and Qing dynasty, modern china was started to take shape. 
    History of china is too long and too descriptive to be entirely included in this short book. However, various important parts are included. History of China is often presented in four major parts. First on is the prehistory. Prehistory describes the period, when china was not unified as a single empire. Various parts surrounding modern Beijing were ruled by multiple independent emperors. In 2100 BC, these parts were conquered by Xia dynasty and empire of china was formed. That indicated the journey of china begun in 2100 BC. Including modern republic of china and People’s Republic of china, china was ruled by more than 20 different dynasties and kingdoms listed below:Xia dynastyShang dynastyZhou dynastyQin dynastyHan dynastyThree kingdomsJin dynastyNorthern and southern dynastiesSui dynastyTang dynastyFive dynasties and ten kingdomsSong, Liao, Jin and western Xia dynastiesYuan dynastyMing dynastyQing dynastyRepublic of chinaPeople’s republic of china 
    This book will take you on a long tour through the history of china. This tour will begin from prehistory of china and progress through ancient china, imperial china and end at modern china.

    A widowed woman finds new life on the road in a memoir that is “much more than a motorcycle diary. It is about overcoming loss and reinventing oneself” (Library Journal).   Recently widowed and feeling adrift in a drab, uninspired life, fifty-seven-year-old Linda Crill had tried to follow all the one-size-fits-all advice she could find—and she was still miserable. Then, out of the blue, she had an idea.   Trading her corporate suits for motorcycle leathers, Linda committed herself to a 2,500-mile road trip down America’s Pacific Northwest coast on a Harley Davidson motorcycle. Along with a group of fellow travelers, Linda undertook a white-knuckled, exhilarating road trip from Vancouver, Canada, to the wine country of Mendocino, California.   Along the way she encountered washed-out mountain roads, small town hospitality, humming redwoods, and acceptance from gentle, caring souls who just happened to have tattoos and piercings. By heading into the unknown and rounding the “blind curve,” she faced her fears, revisited her core beliefs, and discovered not only a broader range of possibilities on the horizon, but also the fuel to embrace them and make them happen.   Funny, irreverent, and extraordinarily honest, Blind Curves is “a must-read for baby boomers hungry to change the direction of the second half of their lives” (Long Rider Magazine).

    “A slim, riveting tome dedicated to the haunts of the Mid-Missouri region . . . [This] book is chock-full of history” (Columbia Daily Tribune).   There is some uncertainty about the exact borders of the region that surrounds the Boonslick Trail but little doubt about the palpable and unsettling presence of its history. Stir up Missourians from St. Louis to Jackson County with the mention of ghosts, and after a few minutes of demurring, you will soon have more stories than you can shake a sheet at. Attend to the haunting music of John “Blind” Boone or the otherworldly poetry of Patience Worth. Crouch down in Civil War battlefields, crowded taverns, or the uncomfortable saddle of a headless horse. Wend your way through Missouri’s haunted heart: the Boonslick.   Includes photos!   “The book covers a broad history of hauntings and unexplained occurrences since 1812. It is peppered with ghost stories that have very human explanations.” —Missourian   “Mary Collins Barile gives a history of the area, and mentions that these ghost stories are ones that are unknown to outsiders, yet important to the history of the region.” —St. Louis magazine

    As a Man Thinketh is a literary essay of James Allen, published in 1902. The title is influenced by a verse in the Bible from the Book of Proverbs chapter 23 verse 7, “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” The main concepts of this book as as follows:    * Men do not attract what they want, but what they are.    * A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts.    * Cherish your visions. Cherish your ideals. Cherish the music that stirs in your heart, the beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts, for out of them will grow all delightful conditions, all heavenly environment, of these, if you but remain true to them your world will at last be built.    * The soul attracts that which it secretly harbors, that which it loves, and also that which it fears. It reaches the height of its cherished aspirations. It falls to the level of its unchastened desires - and circumstances are the means by which the soul receives its own.    * Men are anxious to improve their circumstances, but are unwilling to improve themselves, they therefore remain bound.    * Every action and feeling is preceded by a thought.    * Right thinking begins with the words we say to ourselves.    * Circumstance does not make the man, it reveals him to himself.    * You cannot travel within and stand still without.    * As the physically weak man can make himself strong by careful and patient training, so the man of weak thoughts, can make them strong by exercising himself in right thinking.(Introduction by Wikipedia)
