    Lovely and informative post. The Opium Trade ruled the world so much at one point! Btw, why do you call it the American perspective? I thought at first that it was about some kind of American involvement in the Opium trade 😀

    @bluffkinghal — I probably should have titled the blog post something else. The magazine is American which, to me, gives the article a different flavor. But there were Americans involved in the opium trade at that time. Not as many as the British, of course. I’m glad you enjoyed the article and I hope you read part II.

    No worries. It was a great article by any name.
