The City of Heavenly Tranquility, Peking in the History of China
by Jasper Becker
- ART & ARCHITECTURE
- HARD COVER
- 320 PAGES
Jasper mourns the jumble of courtyard houses, tangle of alleyways, carefully tended ginko and pomegranate trees, gardens and canals swept away in the zeal to reinvent Beijing in this insightful report. Three million people have been displaced in Beijing alone. A correspondant based in Beijing, Becker interviews academics, officials, and regular folk.
