Narrator Nancy Wu traces China's use of silver coinage, ingots, and silver-backed paper currency from the 1400s through the 1940s. Wu shifts seamlessly from the English narrative to Chinese terms and concepts. Her attentive delivery flows steadily as the author examines how silver currency has affected China in its commerce throughout Asia and across the globe. The precision of the text is echoed in Wu's unemotional tone, especially as she doggedly recounts how China benefited from the mining of silver in the Andes and North America. A downloadable pdf of terms and timelines would be useful. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2021]
