ABOUT THIS BOOK
The eighteenth century witnessed the rise of the China market and the changes that resulted in global consumption patterns, from opium smoking to tea drinking. In a valuable transnational perspective, Blussé chronicles the economic and cultural transformations in East Asia through three key cities—Canton, Nagasaki, and Batavia.
