9780875866604: Empress Wu the Great: Tang Dynasty China

Empress Wu ruled China for twenty years during the Tang Dynasty in the seventh century. Enigmatic as well as ambitious, she was one of just two women to reign over this Asian giant. Dr. Woo digs through chronicles and stories to pull together what is known about her family, her rise to prominence, and how she gained power against all the odds.

About the Author:

X. L. Woo was a university professor in China and published several educational books and poetry there. He came to the U.S. as a visiting professor at Rutgers University, and he is now an American citizen. He writes a column for a Chinese newspaper, and is the editor of an English-language newspaper published by Chinese-Americans. Prof. Woo has published three previous books in English including Empress Dowager Cixi (Algora 2002).

Review:

Woo's fourth book in English on Chinese history tells of Empress Wu Zetian the Great (624-705), the only female sovereign to rule in her own name during all of Chinese history. He traces her career from imperial concubine to empress, empress dowager, supreme ruler, relations with other nations, and picking her successor. --BOOK NEWS, Inc.
