In the essay, the differences and similarities between Turkish and Chinese sources is investigated. In the essay, Turkish and Chinese School books, Book of historians, and online sources are used. School History books form the backbone of this essay. Most of the historical background of the society in a country is taught in schools by school history books. School history books are not the same with chronicles or monographies written by specific historiographers. Thus, students cannot question it. They are responsible to learn the information that is inside the school history books. Their knowledge or concept of truth, therefore, may change from one society to another because of different perspectives, so, it is important to detect the content and information differences between high school books. When the history is first taught to students, it is often defined as a collection of objective facts. If history does not consist of anything other than pure objective statements, then there should be some questions about how the relation between cause and effect can be discussed purely objectively and if it is not, what could be the consequences of different interpretations of history? History affects the way of thinking and the future actions of a society against other cultures or other nations. Therefore, by detecting the differences between them, I propose to indicate the different perspectives of two different culture; Chinese and Turkish culture.
