Johnston was highly favoured by the emperor, receiving several imperial titles and residing in the Forbidden City. His account of his time as Puyis tutor, Twilight in the Forbidden City, also reissued in this series, was dramatised in the film The Last Emperor.

Previously, Johnston had served in a variety of colonial service positions, including three years as commissioner of the British-held territory of Weihaiwai. This book, first published in 1910, is Johnstons examination of Weihaiwei, which he considered to be a microcosm of Chinese life.

Writing with obvious affection, Johnston outlines the history, culture, festivals and local folklore of Weihaiwei and explores what the future could hold for the city.
