  From Send2Press®Newswire—Print Friendly Version Books and Publishing NewsPRESS RELEASE: Diogenes Research Announces Release of New Book 'TheChinese Origin of the Age of Discovery' Thu, 27 Sep 2012, 12:58:01 EDT LOS ANGELES, Calif., Sept. 27, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) --Diogenes Research, an independent history research group, todayannounced the publication of two new books on the previously rarelyexamined history of the Age of Discovery, providing resolutions toseveral contentious issues.Did the Chinese precede Christopher Columbus in discoveringAmerica? The question now has been settled once and for all. Not onlywere the Chinese first in having visited the American continents, theymapped the world before the Europeans. Indeed, Europeans went tosea because of having learned the geography of the world from theChinese, and Columbus set sail on account of Chinese sailing guides,and it is virtually certain that Marco Polo never set foot in China.The evidence in support of such conclusions has now beendocumented in the new book The Chinese Origin of the Age of Discovery (ISBN: 978-1-62141-693-7. Translated Chineseversion in traditional Chinese characters, ISBN: 978-1-62141-765-1. Both published through Booklocker.com). VeteranResearcher Chao C. Chien has meticulously collected and analyzed the records preserved from that historical period and theresults are conclusive.In the thirteenth century the Mongols, steppes horsemen that had never seen the ocean, were on tract to conquer the world.After subjugating China, they used their Chinese subjects who had the seafaring knowhow to help chart the globe back in thethirteenth and fourteenth centuries.In the fourteenth century, after toppling the Mongol Yuan Dynasty, the Ming Chinese the advanced naval technology inheritedfrom the Yuan and the newly gained geographical knowledge to launch an unprecedented naval exercise -with fleets carryingupwards of tens of thousands of sailors under the command of the legendary Admiral Zheng He (previously transliterated intoEnglish as Cheng Ho) -that lasted twenty seven years.This colossal effort brought awareness of unknown lands to the outside world and the Chinese knowledge of the world passedon to the Europeans, fascinating them and inspiring them to go to sea. When the Ming Chinese terminated the enterprise andwithdrew from the oceans the Europeans found themselves unopposed in their worldwide expansion, and descriptions of theintriguing place called China found their way into later editions of Marco Polo's travelogue.The book is over 300 pages long and contains over 300 illustrations presenting the support material to this extraordinary studyof world history which has eluded scholars but preserved in European archives all along.
