Return to Dragon Mountain: Memories of a Late Ming Man by Jonathan Spence

Published by Viking Press, New York, 2007. First edition.

Condition: Very Good Hardcover in Fine Dust Jacket. some spotting of the text block

Spence's research, concentrating on the writings of Zhang Dai, a diarist at the time of the Ming Dynasty up to its collapse in 1644, brings the whole era of uncertainty and change to life in a compelling manner. Rather than focusing on the minutiae of court life, since Zhang Dai was only on its periphery, this book tells us how mid level officials coped and survived on a day to day basis. pp xvii & 332. Map of the time and Zhang Dai's family tree.
