At the beginning of the twentieth century, Chinese peasants chafed against the foreign technologies and ideas that the imperialists introduced. Then a new movement - mystical, materialistic, and virulently anti-Christian - began to spread among them like wildfire. The foreigners laughed at the peasants' martial-arts routines and nicknamed them "the Boxers" - never imagining that the group, with the backing of China's empress dowager, would soon terrorize the world... This acclaimed account of the Boxer Rebellion, by an Oxford-trained historian, is an important new addition to every shelf of high-quality, highly accessible history.
