The next volume of the “Most Ancient States of Eastern Europe” yearbook is devoted to the problems of studying economic systems and trade and financial transactions in Eurasia from the 6th to the 11th centuries. The articles collected in the volume reveal this problem on materials from different regions of Eurasia and North Africa. Two articles are devoted to coins of late Antiquity, one - to the relations of medieval China with nomads. The main focus is on the problems of the history of Eastern Europe in the 9th – 11th centuries, first of all, the economy, the money account and the weight systems of the Slavs and Scandinavians. Special attention is paid to the history of the little-studied “transitional” period for Eastern Europe from the 9th to the beginning of the Xth centuries.
In two volumes of the book "Traditional art of China" the artistic tradition of China is considered as a holistic cultural phenomenon with national plastic specificity and unique history. The basic principles of the theory of Chinese art are stated. The first volume covers the era from the Neolithic period to the IX century, inclusive. The second covers X–XIX centuries.
It is intended for centers of teaching Chinese at the level of higher education, as well as students of review courses on the history of Chinese art without studying the Chinese language, historians, archaeologists, culturologists.
