Annual Cundill Lecture, "The Long Road to the First Anglo-Chinese War", by Stephen R. Platt

Mon, 2013-10-21 17:00 - 19:00
Faculty Club : 3450 rue McTavish Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 0E5

2013 Cundill Lecture, From 2012 Cundill Prize Winner Stephen R. Platt

"Imperial Eclipse: The Long Road to the First Anglo-Chinese War"

The Opium War, or First Anglo-Chinese War, of 1839-1842 has long served historians as the chosen starting point for China’s modern history, the launching point of its “century of humiliation” from which successive governments have promised redemption. But such treatment sets the war in stone, as if  China’s military weakness and Britain’s predatory aggression in Canton were eternal and unchanging facts.
