About This Book

This is a comprehensive re-look at the nature, impact and contemporary presentations of the 19th-century Opium Wars inside and outside China. The events themselves are traced, and attitudes of those involved are highlighted. Their subsequent emotionally charged use by Chinese and Western traders and propagandists is shown to have led to ongoing relevance of the events of 175 years ago in today's conduct of international relations. With maps, archival photographs, bibliography and index.
