Notes: "An account of Hong Kong's merchant princes from the origins of the first trading houses in eighteenth-century Canton and Macau to the beginnings of the First Word War. The early taipans, hard-headed business men from Britain, The USA, and India, built up immense fortunes from the opium trade. In the 1830s a single company, Jardine & Matheson, controlled one-third of China's foreign trade." This reissue includes an update, looking ahead to the handover of Hong Kong to China in 1997.

Keys: Hong Kong, China, Jardine Matheson, Russel, Dent, Taikoo, Swire, Sassoons
