In this book, Xiaolong Wu offers a comprehensive and in-depth study of the Zhongshan state during China's Warring States Period (476–221 BCE).

Featuring objects from the ROM’s East Asian collections, this exhibit displays both ancient and modern artifacts from multiple countries together including China, Japan, and Korea.
