"In the spring of 2232, long-denied hopes for a more humane world become manifest in the red-roofed houses of "China on the Rhine." There, Emily Ascher, once a freedom fighter, now lives as Mama Em, mother to the orphan boys of a war-devastated land. But unto the people of Chung Kuo, two children will be born: "Coffin Filler," a baby girl smothered and thrown away but not yet dead, and Josef, a baby boy delivered into a hostile land, yet determined to fight for his life. They are part of a new generation who will see more death than any who have gone before. Although peace seems to reign, the puppet master of an army of giant androids, DeVore, plans one final, absolute destruction. And although the great T'ang, the dictators of Earth, are gone, the mega corporation called GenSyn remains. And soon its pleasure drug called "Golden Dreams" will make Chung Kuo a funeral pyre for golden corpses - until the only escape lies in sending the survivors toward new stars ... or joining Emily Ascher in a battle for liberty and a new Earth."--Jacket

Spring 2201 - Spring 2203: The T'ang who make up the ruling Seven are struggling to maintain stasis and prevent change, as the "War That Wasn't A War" is fought within the levels of Chung Kuo's great world-spanning City: a war fought not with armies on battlefields but with an inventive evil - with bombs and betrayals, brutal assassinations and sly poisonings. Adding to the pressure for change is the existence of a document that charts the true history of this world, not the version invented and policed by the Ministry - the "Thousand Eyes"--Who have, for so long, maintained this dark shadow at the very heart of Chung Kuo. Its discovery by the Dispersionists will fuel their ardent desire for change and for an end to Han rule
The art of war by David Wingrove( Book )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and French and held by 104 libraries worldwide
The year is 2206 and peace has returned. After five years of war, the Seven are weak. They have lost three of their members, and the new T'ang are young and inexperienced. Once it was considered inconceivable but now, down in the lowest levels of the immense city of Chung Kuo, new currents of unrest have awoken that threaten to tear it apart. The fight endures, but the demand for change is not the only threat to the Seven. Major Howard DeVore will use any means available to destroy them and their world-spanning city, and, from their own ranks, Wang Sau-leyan, appointed T'ang after the suspicious deaths of his father and elder brothers, plots to destroy them from within. The Seven are vulnerable and the forces against them continue to grow
