James Bradley is the bestselling author of Flags of our FathersFlyboys, and The Imperial Cruise, a spellbinding history of turbulent US-China relations from the 19th century to World War II and Mao’s ascent. In this talk, Bradley will expose the hidden truths behind America’s engagement in Asia. Beginning in the 1850s, Bradley introduces us to the prominent Americans who made their fortunes in the China opium trade. As they — good Christians, all — profitably lured millions into a crippling addiction, American missionaries arrived to promise salvation for those who adopted Western ways. Thrillingly told, The China Mirage brings to light America’s misconceptions about China and pulls back the curtain on the troubled history that defines US-Chinese relations to this day.
