The China consuls: British consular officers, 1843-1943
With colorful detail and lively anecdotes, P.E. Coates, a former consul in China, here recounts the story of British consular officers in China between 1843 and 1943. Exiled in an alien country that was often resentful of Western imperialism, British officers confronted riots, civil wars, disease, and long separations from their families. A book of interest to the general reader and the scholar, China Consuls adds a new chapter to Chinese and British history.
