  • Columbia's site on Document based history
  • Digital History site on Zheng He
  • An excellent source of information and to review the Ming Dynasty is Mrs. McKee's site which reinforces information in BZ about the three important Ming rulers
  • (the Hongwu, Yongle, and Wanli emperors)
  • An excellent source of information on the Qing Dynasty is Mrs. McKee's site which reinforces information in BZ about the Manchu Conquest of China and the Qing variations on Chinese/Confucian traditions; of particular interest are the descriptions of the two great Qing Emperors Kangxi and Qianlong; focus on these two rulers because they are the most important and because BZ emphasizes them. Skip over the other rulers and rest of the site.
