Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This work is quite by itself. It places opium traffic and policy within the larger context of foreign policy and the international relations of East Asia. There is nothing as comprehensive, authoritative, or up-to-date."—Waldo Heinrichs, Dwight Stanford Chair in History, San Diego State University

"Walker has thoroughly exploited the rich resources in the U.S. State Department records and the U.K. Foreign Office papers and has written a definitive history of opium as a foreign policy issue in the early twentieth century. Opium and Foreign Policy sets the diplomatic issue within the context of opium as a social and economic problem."—Terry M. Parssinen, University of Maryland at College Park
