"Here is the country in the role of host. Here is the story, in all its romantic, adventurous and hilarious detail, of the foreigner in China: missionaries, fortune hunters, traders, merchants, diplomats, educators, adventurers, prostitutes. Writing from his own intimate knowledge of a way of life that is now fast disappearing, Mr. Crow tells how the foreigner lives in China, how he amuses himself, how he works, what he eats and drinks, what he thinks of the Chinese and what the Chinese think of him." - Dustjacket blurb.
