Abstract China's Great Wall suggests a land that shut itself off from the world, yet travelers, ideas, inventions, and goods have flowed in and out of China since ancient times. Buddhism and Islam entered via its fabled silk roads, and innovations in the arts and industrial sciences were exported from its cosmopolitan seaports to the centers of the known world. Why, then, did the most powerful economy on Earth isolate itself from outside trade? In this program, archaeologists, scholars, and others shed light on the tides of China's cultural and economic fortunes, from ancient times to today, as the country once again opens its doors to the world.
