Reviews and Endorsements

 

Named by Fortune as one of the best books of 2021.

           Fortune Magazine

"One of the best academic studies in terms of both scholarship and writing-style I have read in ten years or more. . . . [A]n accessible, exciting, and illuminating book, written with consummate verve and enthusiasm."

           —John Butler, Asian Review of Books

"The Last Embassy is rare in the field of academic history, in that it works just as well as a story as it does as a work of significant historical investigation. The story of the Dutch embassy to Beijing—the last to the Imperial Chinese court—has everything: competing protagonists, trials and tribulations, and imperial pomp and circumstance. Andrade’s work is a wonderfully written work about a neglected event in diplomatic history."

          ―Nicholas Gorden, Fortune Magazine

"Andrade provides a fascinating window onto late eighteenth-century China."

           ―Mark C. Elliott, author of Emperor Qianlong: Son of Heaven, Man of the World

"Drawing on Dutch, French, Spanish, Chinese, and Korean sources, Andrade vividly recreates the experiences of the Dutch mission as it traveled to Emperor Qianlong's court in 1795. Readers will be enthralled by this account, which challenges generalizations about the European view of China in the early nineteenth century."

          ―Evelyn S. Rawski, author of Early Modern China and Northeast Asia: Cross-Border Perspectives

"The Last Embassy is a superbly written, illuminating, and thought-provoking book on an important topic long overlooked by historians. With vivid powers of narration, Andrade takes readers on a grand tour of the geographical, political, and cultural landscapes of Qing China."

          ―Wensheng Wang, author of White Lotus Rebels and South China Pirates: Crisis and Reform in the Qing Empire
