    About this book

Snuff-Bottles and Other Stories conjures up old Beijing in the first half of the twentieth century. It introduces people of all walks of life, from noble Manchu bullies and decedent Bannermen to actors, charlatans, boxers and honest, hard-working craftsmen.
Its accurate descriptions of daily life and customs, set against the background of the brankrupt yet colourful old capital, present us-in a highly readable form- with the social history not found in history books.
