CH: Qing Dynasty

Second Captivating History arc is the Qing Dynasty.

From 1644 to 1924 the Manchu’s ruled China known as the Qing Dynasty. This book encompasses the fall of the Ming dynasty and the rise of the Qing, their consolidation of power and the influence of Western Civilization upon them.

There was the fight to stay traditional and keep out the new technology of the west, and the eventual subjugation of European powers after the two Opium wars. The heavy cost of modernizing and rebellions against it. The horrors of the Boxer Rebellion and eventual collapse into the rule of War Lords before the Japanese invasion of Manchuria in 1931.

The book explains all the complexities of Chinese society and culture over the course of 300 years in an easy to understand narrative.
