    Pu Yi is the famous "Last Emperor of China", subject of a popular film in the 80's by Bernardo Bertolucci and who was a curiosity who died in the 60's during the Cultural Revolution.

    His story as told by his own words, is well written as he was excellently educated by a Scottish diplomat. The book is prefaced by a brief history of the end of the Qing Dynasty but rather blandly presented with any of the controvers

    First, before the words of warning that follow, I want to say that this is a remarkable autobiography that gives the reader a wide appreciation of Chinese history Drury from the 60 years of Henry Pu Yi’s life. I enjoyed it.

    Here come the warnings: 1). He wrote after being “Re educated” for 10 years by Mao Tse Tung. Muc

    It was a rather heavy handed memoir, a bit of a confessional rant with a few glimpses of life in the Forbidden City. I had hoped to gain insight into the daily life and the political workings of the Manchu dynasty.

    Well worth reading if you have been to China and visited the Temple of Heaven in Beijing. Edited and abridged autobiography of the last Emperor until his death in the 1960s. From the early life as a child emperor to invasion by Japan, communism, and brain washing. Comes across as a fairly weak man and used as a

    This book purports to be an autobiography. Within a couple of chapters it becomes obvious it isn’t. The disparity becomes wider as the propaganda element increases to almost laughable levels at the end. A pity

  11. says:

    A fascinating autobiography, regardless of the likelihood that it was ghostwritten by the Chinese communist party. Fascinating details range from Pu Yi's daily menu (while living as a child in the Forbidden City) to dealings with foreign dignitaries and special favors provided by his Japanese puppet masters.

  12. says:

    Clearly much political correctness in this book. No surprises considering the Chinese constantly looking over Pu Yi's shoulders, and the constant brainwashing they subjected him to. Still well worth reading though. The translation seems to be v
