Reviews

'Extraordinarily well-researched, the book contains a great wealth of information. Christopher Munn's book is an important contribution to scholarship; it greatly advances our knowledge of the relations between Chinese and Europeans in the 1840s-1870s. All those interested in the history of Hong Kong should read this splendid work.' - The China Review

'Superb…an impressive achievement.' - China Perspectives
