Book on Russia-China border relations in history

Victor Zatsepine, Beyond the Amur: Frontier Encounters between China and Russia, 1850–1930 (2018). A supremely lucid take on a rather complex subject. For me, the book was helpful in contextualizing the Russo-Japanese War and understanding the background of these unfortunate Russians who washed up in Shanghai in August 1904.
