Review:

The detail in this history of China's emperors and of life in the royal court is astonishing, stretching from the first emperor who unified and ruled China as one nation in 200 BC, to the last, whose short reign as a child ended in 1911. Colorful cartoon-style illustrations credited to the Design and Cultural Studies Workshop, punctuate descriptions of those who served the emperor, the meaning of various military and civilian ranks, the role of empresses, the kind of food served, even the symbolism of the emperors' imperial robes. Written by Chiu Kwong-chiu and Eileen Ng; translatd by Ben Wang.
