Now a Unesco World Heritage site, the Summer Palace in Beijing was built in 1886 on the ashes of the original one which had been razed by invading British and French forces more than 20 years before. This book is a collection of very readable historical anecdotes and stories associated with the gardens, lakes, buildings, bridges and other relics found in the Summer Palace.
