A Court On Horseback

£16.99

Product description

Between 1751 and 1784, the Qianlong emperor embarked upon six southern tours, travelling from Beijing to Jiangnan and back. These tours were exercises in political theatre that took the Manchu emperor through one of the Qing empire's most prosperous regions. This study elucidates the tensions and the constant negotiations characterizing the relationship between the imperial centre and Jiangnan, which straddled the two key provinces of Jiangsu and Zhejiang.
