Notes

The Chinese view of the Opium War against Britain, 1840-42, largely based on the diary of Commissioner Lin at Canton, who tried to prevent the trade by seizing stocks of opium and by harassing the traders in every possible way. Arthur Waley (1889-1966) was and orientalist and sinologist, who was a notable translator of Chinese poetry and also had links with the Bloomsbury Group.
