The author's discussion of the Western Palaces, originally designed by the Jesuits for Qianlong emperor, is in itself particularly interesting. Apparently they served not as residences but rather as museums of a sort -a place where one could view Western artifacts and perhaps imagine being in the West. Regine Thiriez makes it very clear just how different the men of the customs service were from so many of the other westerners, from missionaries to soldiers and diplomats who lived in nineteenth century China.
