Dragon Lady (Sterling & Peggy Seagrave)

A complete reappraisal of the Dowager Empress Tzu Hsi (1835-1908), China's last empress, exposing Sir Edmund Backhouse's writings about her as a hoax and forgery. Showing that far from being all-powerful, she was actually a hostage of vengeful Manchu princes who were just using her in a power struggle against both Chinese reformers and foreign interference. Born the daughter of a Manchu officer in 1835, her notorious ride to fame and power began in the imperial concubinage in 1856 when she gave birth to a boy heir. Seagrave's aim is to destroy longstanding myths created by Western imperialist adventurers of pen and sword who painted her as the Wicked Witch of the East. He exposes Backhouse as a prurient fraud who willfully set out to create an empress who would satiate Western stereotypes of sex-starved Asian women and justify British adventuring inside China. What a masterful debunking of a troubling distortion of Chinese history!
