City of Heavenly Tranquility: Beijing in the History of China

By: Becker, Jasper

Price: $9.00

Publisher: New York, Oxford at the Clarendon Press: 2003

Edition: 1st Printing

Seller ID: 01090961


"Mr. Becker, a British journalist, offers something much richer than a work of reportage. City of Heavenly Tranquility has two particular strengths. One is his reweaving of the threads of Beijing's past to recreate the city of street markets, temple fairs and the 'little games' that so delighted Beijingers. The other strength is the depiction of Beijing as a canvas for the projection of others' fantasies."--The Economist. 384pp. View more info
