Carl A. Trocki:

Opium and Empire: Chinese Society in Colonial Singapore, 1800-1910 (Asia East by South) - hardcover

ISBN: 0801423902

[SR: 7080308], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780801423901], Cornell University Press, Cornell University Press, Book, [PU: Cornell University Press], Cornell University Press, Trocki maintains that the British empire east of the Suez was first and foremost a drug cartel and that British influence was spread by the opium trade. A parallel focus is the economic role of the group of institutions in Singapore known as kongsi, or secret societies; he argues that the social functions of these societies were subverted and criminalized by British opium merchants. This book will be of direct interest to historians of colonial Asia and political scientists concentrating on colonialism and empire. It should also attract a broader audience among those concerned with the powerful influence of drug trafficking on all levels of society., 4891, China, 4884, Asia, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 4995, Middle East, 4996, Bahrain, 4997, Egypt, 4999, Iran, 5000, Iraq, 5001, Israel & Palestine, 5002, Jordan, 5003, Kuwait, 5004, Lebanon, 5005, Oman, 5006, Qatar, 5007, Saudi Arabia, 5008, Syria, 4917, Turkey, 5009, United Arab Emirates, 5010, Yemen, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 5035, World, 15812171, Civilization & Culture, 3825131, Expeditions & Discoveries, 4992, Jewish, 6343224011, Religious, 16244141, Slavery & Emancipation, 15812211, Women in History, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 11235, Cultural, 11233, Anthropology, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 468230, History, 491410, Africa, 684268011, Ancient, 491412, Asia, 491414, Europe, 491418, Latin America, 684269011, Middle East, 684270011, Military, 491422, United States, 468206, Humanities, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books, 491448, Anthropology, 468214, Social Sciences, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books
