1 Becker, Jasper City of Heavenly Tranquility: Beijing in the History of China
New York Oxford at the Clarendon Press 2003 0195309979 / 9780195309973 1st Printing Hard Cover Fine DJ Fine Large Octavo 
"Mr. Becker, a British journalist, offers something much richer than a work of reportage. City of Heavenly Tranquility has two particular strengths. One is his reweaving of the threads of Beijing's past to recreate the city of street markets, temple fairs and the 'little games' that so delighted Beijingers. The other strength is the depiction of Beijing as a canvas for the projection of others' fantasies."--The Economist. 384pp.
