Overview

China is on the verge of world domination, but now rebellion threatens its dominion. Can the kingdom weather the storm? The second installment of David Wingrove's epic masterpiece Chung Kuo.

Change is in the air: the generals of the Middle Kingdom await the decision of the emperor as the campaign to secure the border from China to Iraq has reached a strange impasse. Two blood enemies, Arabs and Jews, have united against their common cause. But with the lives of thousands at his whim, the exalted Tsao Ch'un, the Son of Heaven, cannot decide. Destroy the Middle East in one blinding flash, or take another path? In the court of Tsao Ch'un, men of power have become smiling lackeys, whose graces conceal their fear, or their ambition. A man that can be trusted absolutely is a rare thing. And so, with his family held hostage by the empire, General Jiang Lei finds himself appointed to a special task: the orchestration of the last great war against the West—the total dominion of America. But life in the world of levels continues. No hint of war, want, or discontent can infiltrate the oppressive, ordered society that replaces the world Jake Reed once knew. Since the first airships rolled over the horizon, nothing has been the same. His new life means new thinking, new customs, a new way of behaving, and with his every move scrutinized, Jake can only serve the bureaucracy of new China—but he is not the only citizen who feels discontent with the anodyne new order.
