(French wraps) [light edgewear to covers, minor age-toning to edges of text block, a handful of tiny red ink markings in the margins of a few pages]. (Asian Studies Series) Series (B&W photographs, other illustrations) A short history and cultural study of Macao. The author "explains how and why the Portuguese came to the Far East, and how they peacefully settled in Macao with tacit Chinese goodwill. Macao's golden age, from 1557 to the disastrous collapse of 1641, is vividly reconstructed. There follows the cuckoo-in-the-nest situation of the late 18th century when the British in Macao were a law unto themselves, until the foundation of Hongkong and the opening of Shanghai gave wider scope for their energies. Portugal's subsequent struggle to obtain full sovereignty in 1975 brings the account to present times."
