The West and China Since 1500 surveys Western relations with and attitudes towards China since sustained contact and desirable trading began with the great alternative culture in the sixteenth century. The experiences of traders, diplomats and missionaries are surveyed and illustrated by frequent quotations from contemporary sources. In addition the book explores the flow of cultural influences in both directions, and changes in Western opinion about China from admired model, to disdained 'land of the eternal standstill', to feared resurgent power. Finally, the author examines current issues in dispute such as Taiwan and human rights.
