Asian Empire and British Knowledge : China and the Networks of British Imperial Expansion, Hardback Book

Asian Empire and British Knowledge : China and the Networks of British Imperial Expansion Hardback

Part of the Cambridge Imperial and Post-Colonial Studies Series series

Description

British knowledge about China changed fundamentally in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

Rather than treating these changes in British understanding as if Anglo-Sino relations were purely bilateral, this study looks at how British imperial networks in India and Southeast Asia were critical mediators in the British encounter of China.
