Reviews

"A dense volume, faultlessly edited and with a remarkable bibliography--in short, a reference work on the state of research in an area the scope of which is in constant expansion. In Opium Regimes can be found both the results and, conversely, the weaknesses of the history of opium in Asia."--China Perspectives
