Tzu Hsi (1835-1908) is remembered as one of history's monsters, but that image is false."The first complete reappraisal of the empress -- exposing Backhouse's writings about her as a major hoax and forgery, and establishing that the most important Western correspondent in Peking during her reign -- Dr. George Morrison of the London Times -- kept a secret diary contradiciting his own dispatches about Tzu Hsi.".

Sinopsis: The author of The Soong Dynasty gives us our most vivid and reliable biography yet of the Dowager Empress Tzu Hsi, remembered through the exaggeration and falsehood of legend as the ruthless Manchu concubine who seduced and murdered her way to the Chinese throne in 1861.
From the Trade Paperback edition.
Reseña del editor:
"An all-out revisionist assault on the established perception of Tzu Hsi...Seagrave provides as sad and outrageous a record of imperialism as can be found anywhere in the world."
--The San Francisco Chronicle
