Review

The Boxer Rebellion is something I'd heard of but didn't have a clue what it was (other than a funny term that might refer to underwear).  I didn't even know it happened in China.  This book not only gave me a basic understanding of the event, but gives a fictional first-hand story complete with visualized spiritualized elements.  A great read full of history and ethical questions.  (Yang released a companion book, Saints, to show a second perspective on the event that is also helpful)
