Format: Paperback
First things first: this is a very good book. It is informative,easy to read, and well written. It is a comprehensive history of Chinese political interaction with the West. The early missionaries and explorers are here, as are the more recent conflicts and regimes which formed China up until the 1930's. The only trouble with this book is that it is so old-originally published in 1925. Almost a century has passed since then, and as a result the book can seem dated and dry in a few places.

Still, a very good book overall.

A great reference work which was a good accompaniment to 1841. It shows the miriad of inventions that the Chinese had made centuries before the European discoveries
