The story of the discovery and excavation of a group of perfectly preserved mummies buried around 1000 BC in Chinese Turkestan, the remains of an hitherto-unknown Caucasian people.

Condition: Fine


"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. View more info
