The China Collectors
- America's Century-Long Hunt for Asian Art Treasures
- By: Karl E. Meyer, Shareen Blair Brysac
- Narrated by: George Backman
- Length: 17 hrs and 10 mins
Thanks to Salem sea captains, Gilded Age millionaires, curators on horseback, and missionaries gone native, North American museums now possess the greatest collections of Chinese art outside of East Asia itself. How did it happen? The China Collectors is the first full account of a century-long treasure hunt in China from the Opium Wars and the Boxer Rebellion to Mao Zedong's 1949 ascent.
Very informative and interesting
