An excellent source of information on the Qing Dynasty is
Qing Dynasty or < http://castinet.castilleja.org/users/pmckee/chineseart/qing-dynasty.html >
This site 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.
