China under the empress dowager, being the history of the life and times of Tzǔ Hsi, comp. from the state papers and the private diary of the comptroller of her household by J. O. P Bland( )

99 editions published between 1910 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most popular and controversial Chinese history books ever written, this account explores the Forbidden City during the reign of Empress Dowager Cixi (1861-1908). Entertaining and enlightening, this record examines a world of power-thirsty eunuchs, concubines, and Mandarins. Filled with intrigue, bitter antagonism, and ruthless reprisals and predicting the fall of the Qing dynasty, this history is heavily based on Chinese source materials, some of which may have been fabricated
Annals & memoirs of the court of Peking (from the 16th to the 20th century) by E Backhouse( Book )

55 editions published between 1913 and 2013 in English and held by 742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The enduring interest displayed by many readers in the character of China's great Empress Dowager Tzŭ Hsi, and the generous appreciation accorded to our work on her life and reign, have prompted the belief that the present work, covering a wider stretch of space and time, should prove interesting, and of some value, to those who desire to study the causes, immediate and remote, of recent and current events in the Far East. Until we understand something of the mainsprings of thought and action which determine the governance and daily life of a people-something of their atavistic memories and instincts, of their social, religious and economic systems, it is not possible to sympathise with them in their perils and crises of change, or to render them the assistance which appreciation of their motives and intelligent anticipation of their needs might supply. -- Introduction
