The author's wide travel in the Orient and her study of all available resources have combined to produce the three fascinating stories told here--the lives of three oriental geniuses: Shah Jahan, artist-emperor of India; Chien Lung, Manchu emperor of China; and Hideyoshi, a delightful parvenu and unselfish patriot of Japan. The author demonstrates great sensitivity to the distinguishing national characteristics and inner spirit of the countries themselves.

Originally published in 1930.
