Great Pictures, not much content 2007/8/6
投稿者 George D. Klein, author, Dissensions - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
I bought the book because I had only recently learned of Zeng He's major voyages. I was expecting not just excellent moden photographs, but also recovered ancient Chinese prints illustrating the expeditions and boat design. No shipwrite pictures of the plans or design of the ships were included. Moreover, the book fails to answer how such huge ships managed to sail without tipping over? How deep was the ship's draft? This is not a trivial issue because the ships as illustrated sailed "high" and some sort of deep hold or large keel had to stablize these ships. The only glimpse of this is a picture of a large rudder. Perhaps all these details were lost due to the demise of the Chinese fleet after the death of Zeng He's patron, the emporor. Nevertheless, that issue should have been addressed and it wasn't.

The narrative is part history, part colloquiual culture, part legend, part 'tall tales' (some stereotyped) about the customs of the lands visited by Zheng He and part personal observations and reminiscences by the author. Very little reference material was provided.

Zeng He clearly was a major explorer and his acocmplishments must have been sizeable given the terrain he visited BEFORE the Spanish, Portugese, Dutch and British arrived in the Indian and western and southestern Pacific oceans. In my view, this book trivilizes his remarkable accomplishments.

Picture Book, Not History 2008/10/30

This book was a disappointment to me, because it contains very little history of Zheng He. It is almost entirely a picture book of the modern places he visited.

Chinese goodwill fleet of Zheng He 2012/10/1
投稿者 Walter W. Ko - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
This is a beautiful photo-journalist book that traced Chinese Navigator Admiral Zheng He seven voyages. The ports and the livelihood changed more or less since the Chinese visit. Each chapter gives a few pages of text to help readers understand the historical background. The pictures are impressive from sea and air along the Chinese routes from Asia to Africa. This powerful Chinese fleet with men and power gained the hearts and minds of South-east Asian people who still remember and honor him with respect for good fortune. For a more detail story on Admiral Zheng He, check the suggested book lists.

It is interesting to read the authors had the vision of meeting Zheng He and his fleet at the 2008 Beijing Olympic opening ceremony even this book was published in 2005. No doubt, China in Ming Dynasty was the riches and most powerful empire in the world (p.17) Zheng He was a good will ambassador to bring peace and harmony to the countries he visited even he had the power to conquer and colonize. In the West, history told of the great navigators were Spanish, Italian and British. Why forgot this great pioneer world explorer with accurate maps?

This is a good and heavy book in photos and weight to enjoy and learn of this great Chinese navigator in world history.

Michael Yamashita is a national geographic photographer who searched out all the places Zheng He traveled to and offers great detail in text and photos. He has also made a video which is worth searching out. For those who don't know Zheng He is the Chinese Columbus, who sailed 70 years ahead of him, exploring and trading in Southeast Asia, India, the Arabian Peninsula and part of East Africa. Quite a story
