Description

First published in 1958.

This volume translates and places in the appropriate historical context a number of private documents, such as diaries, autobiographies and confessions, which explain what the Opium War felt like on the Chinese side.

Reviews

'The interest of Arthur Waley's fascinating and scholarly examination of contemporary Chinese diaries and records is that it shows that the Chinese officials were unaware of the crucial importance of their country's helplessness.' - The Daily Telegraph
