Being such a big site with hundreds of files, China, an Inner Realm contains tons of information and is full of facts. Where did it all come from? NO, as much as we would like to think it to be so, it didn't all come from our heads! (we may be smart and intelligent, but our brains don't have that much capacity!) Instead, we spent a good deal of our time in libraries, on the internet, and travelling around doing research and gathering information.
Here is a list of the many, many references we used to build this site. Without these sources, our page would definitely not be what it is now.
Because we have collected a great number of references, we divided and grouped separate reference lists for each section. We are hopeful that this will make things look less chaotic and will help you find what you need.
These references that provided general information for China as a whole or for more than one of the below categories.
References for the Land of China
References for the Culture of China
References for the Language of China
