Dragon Lady: The Life and Legend of the Last Empress of China

by

The last empress of China--the Dowager Empress Tzu Hsi (1835-1908)--is remembered as one of history's monsters, the iron-willed concubine who, after usurping power in 1861, ruled with poison and intrigue for half a century. But the image is false. In 1974, to the dismay of scholars, the primary sources for the accepted biographies were proved fraudulent. Now comes the first complete reappraisal of the empress. 16 pages of photos and illustrations.
