Published in 1866, this two-volume work is a passionate account of the momentous Taiping Rebellion of 1850-64, which spread across southern China, involving the death of around 20 million people. An English officer and supporter of the rebels, Augustus Frederick Lindley (1840-73) actively fought for them and believed devotedly in their cause. Led by Christian convert Hong Xiuquan, they rose up against the ruling Qing dynasty in an attempt to force social, commercial and religious reforms, but were eventually brutally crushed with the aid of British and French forces. Prior to his death at the age of only thirty-three, Lindley produced this accomplished work of historical exposition and anti-imperialism. Volume 2 focuses particularly on the actions and character of General Charles Gordon, whose forces were responsible for many atrocities, but who enjoyed great popularity in Britain. It also details the effects of the British government's Chinese policy.
