Inhaltsangabe: With colorful detail and lively anecdotes, P.E. Coates, a former consul in China, here recounts the story of British consular officers in China between 1843 and 1943. Exiled in an alien country that was often resentful of Western imperialism, British officers confronted riots, civil wars, disease, and long separations from their families. A book of interest to the general reader and the scholar, China Consuls adds a new chapter to Chinese and British history.

'The most fascinating ingredient of Mr Coates's splendidly scholarly study of the China Consuls is his meticulous analysis of their inter-relationships ... a way of life that seemed destined to last as long as European power itself ... Mr Coates's fascinating book is likely to stand as its
most lasting memorial.'
John Keegan, Daily Telegraph
'Although presented in solid academic fashion, with pages of footnotes, this is an entertaining book. Coates has made good use of the vast amount of material available in the Foreign Office archives and has done some masterly detective work in tracking down the family and educational
background of most of the China Consular service. The China Consuls is a worthy monument to Coates's many years of hard work.'
J.E. Hoare, Asian Affairs
'massive and elegant book ... the results of the years of research involved do not disappoint'
