"Foreigners Within the Gates recreates the blossoming, upheaval, and decline of this precariously placed 'little Europe,' from its establishment in the late 1900s, through the violence of the Boxer rebellion, the Japanese occupation of the 1930s, and the Legation Quarter's disappearance in post-war Peking."--dustjacket.
