From the introduction:

"The Great Learning lies in manifesting illustrious virtue; developing the people; and resting in the highest excellence.”  Zeng Zi (505BC- 435BC)

Though many civilisations may claim to be the oldest, there is no doubt that China has the longest continuous history—3,500 years of written history. Chinese history provides an amazing story from its ancient primitive beginnings, through its highest points of development in philosophy, art and literature to a relatively low point until its recent resurgence. Today, China is increasingly becoming a global power and current trends show it will become one of the most powerful nations in the world during the 21st Century.
