Robert Bickers is an expert in the field of modern Chinese history and British colonialism. His previous publications include Empire Made Me: An Englishman Adrift in Shanghai, a biography about a British police officer in the Shanghai Municipal Police, and The Scramble for China: Strangers in the Middle Kingdom, 1832-1914. He is currently a professor of history at the University of Bristol.


"Riots and robbers, gangs and guns, dope dealers and trunk murderers - E.W. Peters met them all with no more than his badge . . . and a fully loaded Colt .45." --Paul French, author, Midnight in Peking
