Book exposes life of last eunuch

A BOOK, "The Last Eunuch of China - Life of Sun Yaoting," has been published in English by Beijing-based China International Press.

Sun Yaoting (1902-96) was a eunuch who served the royal family and accompanied Puyi, China's last emperor of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), through his final years as "emperor" of "Manchukuo."

This was a puppet state created by the Japanese invaders in northern China in 1931.

Sun told many stories of his life with Puyi to close friend and author Jia Yinghua, who has written other biographies about the last emperor.
