Opium was as important to world trade & politics in the 19th century as petroleum is today. The Opium Wars forced China to give trading rights to Western companies, allowing opium to become the basis for international trade with China. At first, it seemed benign, & during the 19th century, European writers even praised it. But, by the time the dangers became apparent, it was too late. Escape from the “real world” & physical addiction came together, & are still with us to this day. This book presents a beautifully illustrated history of a toxic substance associated with a sensation of inner freedom. Full-color illustrations on heavy coated stock.
