Boxer Rebellion: The Dramatic Story of China’s War on Foreigners That Shook the World in the Summer of 1900
Diana Preston. In the last years of the 19th century, the Western powers were bickering over how to slice up the pie of China, while the presence they had already established there was undermining the Chinese people’s traditional ways. Then a new movement -- mystical, militaristic, & virulently anti-Christian -- began to spread like wildfire among the Chinese peasants. The foreigners nicknamed them “the Boxers” -- a snickering reference to their martial-arts routines -- never imagining that the group would soon terrorize the world. Based on diaries, letters, memoirs, & extensive research, this is “a fast-paced & exciting narrative that skillfully captures the human interest, folly, irony, & tragedy of this historic upheaval.” B&W photos. National Bestseller!!
