Course Description

How did China regard the first Britons to arrive? What was the ‘Canton System’ and what were its commodities? Which Chinese leader believed he was the brother of Christ, and with what consequences for China? Which Chinese ruler welcomed British wives and children in Peking as ‘one family, all one family’ but consented to attempts to kill them? What was ‘Extraterritoriality’, and what were its origins? This course studies British activity in China between the seventeenth and twentieth centuries, from China’s early restrictions on British trade and residence to the forced opening-up of the Celestial Empire.
