Tales of Old Peking: Inside the Walls of China's Tumultuous Capital by Derek Sandhaus

A forbidden city for Westerners for hundreds of years, China's capital has always been viewed as one of the world's most mysterious cities. This book re-creates a sense of old Peking through a pastiche of historical snippets—stories, quotations, cartoons, postcards and drawings—and shares intriguing tidbits about the Imperial Court. Placing Peking in the context of the Boxer Rebellion, when two very different yet equally headstrong cultures clashed, this is a valuable source for those interested in Chinese history.
