Podrobný popis:

Publikace: Empress Dowager Cixi: The Concubine Who Launched Modern China - Jung Chang. This is from the bestselling author of Wild Swans and Mao: The

Unknown Story. In this groundbreaking biography, Jung Chang vividly

describes how Empress Dowager Cixi - the most important woman in

Chinese history - brought a medieval empire into the modern age.

Under her, the ancient country attained virtually all the

attributes of a modern state and it was she who abolished gruesome

punishments like 'death by a thousand cuts' and put an end to

foot-binding. Jung Chang comprehensively overturns the conventional

view of Cixi as a diehard conservative and cruel despot and also

takes the reader into the depths of her splendid Summer Palace and

the harem of Beijing's Forbidden City, where she lived surrounded

by eunuchs - with one of whom she fell in love, with tragic

consequences. Packed with drama, fast-paced and gripping, it is

both a panoramic depiction of the birth of modern China and an

intimate portrait of a woman: as the concubine to a monarch, as the

absolute ruler of a third of the world's population, and as a

unique stateswoman. "Powerful."

-- Simon Sebag Montefiore "Truly authoritative."

-- New York Times "Wonderful."

-- Sunday Times It is shortlisted for the James Tait Black

Biography Prize. Publikace: Empress Dowager Cixi: The Concubine Who Launched Modern China - Jung Chang.
