Publishers Description: This biography tells the story of George Morrison, an Australian journalist who reported on China for the London Times during the era of the Boxer Rebellion. This is both the personal story of an intrepid journalist who became a national hero and the broader story of the emergence of China onto the world stage. Morrison's involvement in the behind-the-scenes power struggles and his role as advisor to the fledgling government are covered in detail.
