London. Macmillan. 1992. Stock ID #51819

xv + 601pp, index, a little very light soiling edges, very good copy in dustjacket.

The reptilian image of Tzu His, the last Empress of China was largely based on the writings of Sir Edmund Backhouse. Sterling Seagrave explains how this myth was contrived and with the use of many unpublished and overlooked contemporary sources he reveals a very different portrait of Tzu Hsi.
