This week’s competition prize is Ming: 50 years that changed China, edited by Craig Clunas and Jessica Harrison-Hall (The British Museum Press, £40)

Published to accompany a major exhibition at the British Museum, the BP exhibition, ‘Ming: 50 years that changed China’ focuses on the significant years of the early Ming dynasty, and through the themes of court people and their lives, extraordinary developments in culture, the military, religion, diplomacy and trade, this magnificent book brings the wider history of this fascinating time to colourful life. The engaging narrative is richly illustrated with over 250 images, drawing on the spectacular objects specially selected for the British Museum’s exhibition. It includes new research and archaeological discoveries; some of these objects were still buried only 10 years ago.

For your chance to win simply answer the following question and submit your details here before midday on 10 October 2014.
