Read full description of the books Keizerin van China:

Dit monumentale werk geeft in romanvorm de levensgeschiedenis weer van de roemruchte Ts'e-si, keizerin-regentes en laatste regerende vorstin van China. Deze Ts'e-si hield in de tweede helft van de negentiende eeuw door intriges en zelfs moord op de jonge keizer in feite de macht in handen, toen China worstelde tegen buitenlandse invloeden, terwijl tegelijkertijd de behoefte aan hervorming en modernisering dringend werd gevoeld. Ts'e-si bleef door dik en dun de tradities van het oude China verdedigen. Hiermee haalde zij zich de haat van de 'nieuwdenkers' op het lijf, maar voor de plattelandsbevolking werd zij de personificatie van het heroïsche China zelf.
