"No city captures the imagination while disturbing the soul quite like Old Shanghai. Asia's largest city, it pulsated with wealth and sophistication while oozing human suffering.
Old Shanghai conveys the complex texture of Chinese and foreign life in the metropolis from its days as a market town, through its urbane, but sometimes sinister international heyday, to the Communist take-over in 1949." - Publisher's description.
