'British Imperial Rule in China during the First Opium War (1840-1842)'
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Christine L Corton.
This talk is open to the public and may be podcast
China historians have often presented the First Opium War as a series of diplomatic, military, commercial, and cultural conflicts between Britain and China. In contrast, this talk looks at one “inner” aspect of the war, namely the rule of the British Expedition over China’s littoral regions subject to occupation and blockade, thereby shedding light on British imperialism in modern China.
