Where did the word “China” (Middle State) come from? Why was our country named “Middle State” (China)? This book retraces the origins of China. It provides readers with a timeline, and tells the stories that happened in the central plain (the middle and lower reaches of the Huanghe River) around BC 2000. Through its analysis of the rise and fall of Taosi, Songshan Culture, the rise of Xinzhai Site, and Erlitou Site, the author deconstructs the birth of the Xia Dynasty, which was the first dynasty of China.

Xu Hong, born in 1963. He is a researcher in the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. His interests lie in archaeological research of China’s early cities, early countries and civilization.
