First book describes those former outposts of European trade one by one.

The story begins with the first five Treaty Ports – Amoy, Canton, Foochow, Ningpo and Shanghai –this book shows how the Westerners pushed their way into china coasts in the late ninetieth century, and what challenges they face and what were the response from China. This is the first book in modern times to describe these former outposts of European trade one by one.

Robert Nield has been resident in Hong Kong for thirty years. He retired from the partnership of PricewaterhouseCoopers in 2002, since when he has been pursuing a number of interests. These have included amateur dramatics and flying, but latterly have focused on history, in particular the European experience in China. He is the President of the Hong Kong Branch of the Royal Asiatic Society and has had a number of articles published in the society’s Journal. He co-wrote, with Denis Way, Counting House: The History of PricewaterhouseCoopers on the China Coast; this was published in 2002 to mark the firm’s centenary.
