Kenneth Pomeranz is writing a book called “Why is China So Big?” that asks why a very large area and population in this region have been part of a single, generally expanding, polity for so much of history, and how that unity has been reproduced in different eras. It includes historical discussions of ecology, political economy, war-making, culture, and ethnicity.
