Beijing: The Biography of a City
Jonathan Clements (au)
An original history of the Beijing region -- from its prehistoric roots to its place in myth as the site of wars between demigods, its forgotten century as a kingdom in its own right, through the many dynasties of the imperial era and the rise of Communism, until the eve of the 2008 Olympics. Introduces some of the colorful characters who have enriched Beijing’s history -- legendary figures like Nezha the dragon slayer and Jing Ke the assassin, great transformers such as Khubilai Khan and the Yongle Emperor, famous residents from Marco Polo to Chairman Mao, the intrigues of its 7 kings and imperial masters down to the Last Emperor. “Explores the best and least-known landmarks.” Color photos.
