The author of Wild Swans tells us the extraordinary story of the most important woman in Chinese history: Empress Dowager Cixi who ruled China for 47 years.

Selected at 15 as one of the Emperor’s 3000 concubines, she launched a palace coup at his death and transformed the country from a medieval state into a modern society.

Jung Chang will be in conversation with Jonathan Fenby, formerly editor of The South China Morning PostThe Observer and Reuters World Service as well as a senior correspondent for The Economist. He is the author of six books on China.
