America's First Adventure in China
- Trade, Treaties, Opium, and Salvation
- By: John R. Haddad
- Narrated by: Kirk O. Winkler
- Length: 13 hrs and 29 mins
In 1784, when Americans first voyaged to China, they confronted Chinese authorities who were unaware that the United States even existed. Nevertheless, a long, complicated, and fruitful trade relationship was born after American traders, missionaries, diplomats, and others sailed to China with lofty ambitions: to acquire fabulous wealth, convert China to Christianity, and even command a Chinese army. In America's First Adventure in China, John Haddad provides a colourful history of the evolving cultural exchange and interactions between these countries.
