The Chinese in Britain Description

Today more than 400,000 Chinese live in Britain, many more attend British universities, and an increasing number visit Britain on business and as tourists. But until now, there has been no comprehensive history of the Chinese who came to the country. This book tells that story, from the first recorded visitor in 1687 through to the 20th century, drawing on accounts by visiting Chinese, newspaper articles, memoirs, royal diaries, and other contemporary sources. The book encompasses, among much else, the sailors who worked on British ships and briefly lodged in the country between voyages; the emergence of Chinatowns in London and Liverpool; servants; students; links to missionaries; Chinese entertainers; exhibitions relating to China; Chinese envoys and ambassadors; and British royalty's engagement with visiting Chinese. The book also includes extended biographies of some of the most significant Chinese to settle in Britain, including the first such immigrant, who has been overlooked in the historical record. The author also deals with the suspicion and prejudice that the Chinese have historically experienced due to their different physical appearance, dress, and culture. At the same time, he shows the longevity and success of Sino-British trade, friendships and cultural influence. As China becomes a pre-eminent world power again in the twenty-first century, this book uncovers our long relationship with the country and its people.
