China and the Manchus is a classic Chinese history text by Herbert A. Giles. The Manchus are descended from a branch of certain wild Tungusic nomads, who were known in the ninth century as the Nuchens, a name which has been said to mean "west of the sea." The cradle of their race lay at the base of the Ever-White Mountains, due north of Korea, and was fertilised by the head waters of the Yalu River.

Book Description:

China and the Manchus by Herbert A. Giles was first published in 1912 as part of the Cambridge Manuals of Science and Literature series. The volume presents a historical account of the Manchu people and the Qing Dynasty.

About the Author:

Herbert Allen Giles (1845 – 1935) was a British diplomat, sinologist, and professor of Chinese language. Giles was educated at Charterhouse School before becoming a British diplomat in China. He modified a Mandarin Chinese Romanization system earlier established by Thomas Wade, resulting in the widely known Wade–Giles Chinese romanization system. Among his many works were translations of Confucius, Lao Tzu, Chuang Tzu, and in 1892 the first widely published Chinese-English dictionary.
