Britain and China in the Opium Wars with Mark Simner


British military historian Mark Simner tackles the Opium Wars, rarely taught in English schools, but taught ubiquitously across China. He explains the provenance of both conflicts, and explores some of the reasons why resentment still lingers to this day. The Opium Wars are a critical part of Chinese history, and vital to understanding the first half of the 20th century in China, and to some extent, modern-day China.
