Abstract

For centuries, the Chinese people thought of their country as the center of the world; indeed, “China,” in the Chinese language, is “zhong guo,” which literally means “Central Kingdom.” This phrase has a certain ring of truth when one considers that China has an enormous land area, the world’s largest population, and the longest recorded history of any nation.
