Reviews

Taking the maritime story as her main theme, Levathes presents a fascinating picture of political and court life during the first several reigns of the Ming ... The story Levathes tells so skillfully could scarcely be more timely. The Washington Post Both an eloquent and smooth sail through history, and a reminder the China should have been the world's great imperial power; a glimpse into a shrouded past, and a journey that is astonishing and fun.
