A dance with the dragon : the vanished world of Peking's foreign colony

Boyd, Julia, 1948-2012
Books
The last great capital to remain untouched by the modern world, Peking both entranced and horrified its foreign residents. Ignoring the poverty, they danced, played and squabbled among themselves, oblivious to the political events that were shaping modern China. This is a portrait of aforeign community and on China itself.
