China under the Empress dowager the history of the life and times of Tzu Hsi by J. O. P Bland( Book )
143 editions published between 1905 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 2,259 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

"In 1898 a young Englishman walked into a homosexual brothel in Peking and began a journey that, as he claims, took him all the way to the bedchamber of imperial China's last great ruler, the Empress Dowager. Published now for the first time, the controversial memoir of sinologist Sir Edmund Backhouse provides a unique and shocking glimpse into the hidden world of China's imperial palace with its rampant corruption, grand conspiracies and uninhibited sexuality."--Publisher's description
