Pearl S. Buck: A Cultural Bridge across the Pacific

By Kang Liao | Go to book overview
1.
This is the incident that started the second Opium War ( 1856-60), also known as the "Arrow" War, or the Anglo-French War in China. The New Encyclopaedia Britannica says in the entry of Opium Wars, "In 1856 the British, seeking to extend their trading rights in China, found an excuse to renew hostilities when some Chinese officials boarded the ship Arrow and lowered the British flag." Then the second Opium War broke out. "The French joined the British in this war, using as their excuse the murder of a French missionary in the interior of China."

Just a glance at the contents of Smith's book is enough to see that these misconceptions were only some of the prejudices against the Chinese, and as Charles Hayford said, the book is now best known as an example of Sino-myopia.
