An evocative account of the infamous nightlife district of pre-communist Beijing, from the internationally acclaimed author of the book Midnight in Peking. The Badlands, a warren of narrow hutongs in the eastern district of pre-communist Peking, had its heyday in the 1930s.

These vignettes of eight non-Chinese residents of the precinct - White Russians, Americans and Europeans - bring the Badlands vividly back to life, providing a short but potent account of a place and a way of life until now largely forgotten, but here rendered unforgettable
