JULIA BOYD A Dance with the Dragon: The Vanished World of Peking’s Foreign Colony Lady Boyd’s book is a fascinating portrait of Peking's foreign community in the early 20th century—a diverse group of characters as exotic as the city itself. As the last great capital to remain untouched by the modern world, the city both entranced and horrified its foreign residents. Note: This is a Royal Oak Foundation event.
