Quick Overview

Edward Behr.  Second hand book.

In 1908 at the age of three, Henry Pu Yi was enthroned as emperor of the centuries-old Manchu dynasty. After revolutionaries forced Pu Yi to abdicate in 1911, the young emperor lived for thirteen years in Peking’s Forbidden City, but with none of the power his birth afforded him. Pu Yi lived out his adolescence as a Living God in a make-believe world attended by thousands of eunuchs, courtiers and corrupt officials. The remainder of Pu Yi’s life was lived out in a topsy-turvy fashion: fleeing from a Chinese warlord, becoming head of a Japanese puppet state, being confined to a Russian prison in Siberia, and enduring taxing labour camps. Handed over to Communist China for ‘re-education’ he spent nine years in a special prison until his ‘reform’ was complete.

Hard cover with dust jacket. 335 pages.
