Spoilt Children of Empire: Westerners in Shanghai and the Chinese Revolution of the 1920s (SIGNED)


Clifford, Nicholas R.

Hardcover. Hanover, NH, University Press of New England, 1st, 1991, Book: Very Good, Dust Jacket: Very Good, 361 pages. Hardcover. INSCRIBED BY AUTHOR. Gilt title on spine. Small bit of age wear to dust jacket, otherwise nice clean copy inside and out. From the back cover: "Shanghai in the 1920s was a society of excess, almost perfectly designed to let Chinese and Westerners see each other at their worst. In (this book) Nicholas Clifford draws on a wide range of diplomatic and police documents to show just why this should have been so. This is an absorbing tale of privilege, exploitation and resentment--one that adds a fresh dimension to our studies of a decade that proved central to China's modern history."
