Excellent – A Jesuit in the Forbidden City: Matteo Ricci 1552-1610

This is a 2012 book and the first critical biography of Ricci to use all relevant sources, both Chinese and Western. This is a very well-written biography. The research is thorough. For a broader perspective of the Jesuit Mission to China, you should read Journey to the East by Liam Brockey.
