Product Details


“Beginning with the First Opium War in 1839 and continuing through the present day, Rutherfurd tells a sweeping tale that brings to life a nation’s history, traditions and the people who lived through it as if by magic.”

“Bravo; this is a big, complex, and utterly involving portrait of 19th-century China.”
The Times (London)

“It’s a bravura performance, fizzing with incident, excitement and energy.”
The Daily Mail

“[An] action-packed saga.”
Publisher’s Weekly

“Edward Rutherfurd is known for massive historical novels usually set in cities like New York, Paris and London. They dig deeply into a specific place and he focuses on a certain period. . . . Rutherfurd’s thorough research shows again here in his descriptions of China and other places in Asia like Hong Kong and Macao. . . . Besides place, Rutherfurd also has thoroughly researched the many complexities of Chinese culture. . . . China can perhaps be placed in the same basket as the James Clavell novels of Tai-Pan and Noble House. . . . Worth sticking with all 760 pages” 
—Asian Review of Books
