Understanding the Elephant: A Xiangqi Primer Part 1




History of Xiangqi

Authored by Jim Hau Cheng Png
Edition: 1
Chinese Chess, or Xiangqi which is the preferred term, is the most played board game or form of chess in the Orient. Yet despite its popularity inside of Asia, it is relatively foreign to the West. 
Understanding the Elephant: A Xiangqi Primer is a series of books aimed at promoting the game to the West.
In the very first part of the series, the history of Xiangqi is presented. Ancient Chinese texts, and contemporary books on the subject have been used to present and compare early articles or books on the topic in the West.
