We heard a lot about Beijing this year since it was the site of the Summer Olympics.  We saw the venues and got a bit of the history of the city.  This book gives us a glimpse of the thousands of years in Beijing's past right up to the 2008 Olympics.  In 16000 B.C., it was little more than a marshy home for the earliest humans.  Now it is one of the major cities in the world.
SUBJECTS:     Beijing (China) -- History.
