American Historical Review
"For anyone who has come under Macau's spell, this [book] is a must." (Asiaweek) "This is not so much an examination of a city as an evocation of a place in time, a Macau that is about to be lost....Porter's book reminds us that a city should be savored, not just analyzed."

Book Description
A spellbinding history of a remarkable city poised on the intersection between East and West with a new epilogue by the author In this evocative essay, Jonathan Porter examines Macau as an enduring but ever-changing threshold between two worlds, the West and China. Founded by the Portuguese in 1557, Macau's geographical uniqueness has made it particularly fascinating, yet the history of Macau's cultural and social history also speaks to larger issues of cross-cultural exchange...

Book Description
...a useful contribution that reflects the resurgence of scholarly interest in Chinese political culture. Yee combines an impressive amount of quantitative analysis with a provocative comparative framework to give us new insights into what's on the mind of university students throughout 'Greater China.'-Kevin J. O'Brien, University of California-Berkeley and Ohio State University The People's Republic of China (PRC) is undergoing a significant transformation. Rapid and sustained economic growth since the early 1980s has brought along tremendous social and political changes in China. Economic prosperity and a relatively more relaxed political and social environment has enabled the Chinese people to choose different ways of life; many are attracted by the Western way of life. The Mainland Chinese have copied or...

Laura Lippman, Award winning, bestselling mystery writer
"A stylish, fresh take on classic noir themes."

Review
"The Living Room of the Dead is a stylish, fresh take on classic noir themes. You won't soon forget Eric Stone's vivid depictions of Macau and Vladivostok--or the sad, doomed characters who think they're simply passing through."--Laura Lippman, Edgar Award-winning author of By a Spider's Thread

"Auspicious debut thriller by a former journalist who knows the exotic locales whereof he writes: the story is original and compelling, a page-turner with the spare, relentless style of Dennis Lehane or Michael Connelly."--John Farris, bestselling author of The Fury on The Living Room of the Dead

From Library Journal
Composed of two dictionaries--the much larger one for Hong Kong--this reference includes tables, a chronology, and an extensive bibliography for each place. The short entries vary in quality (under Hong Kong, for example, "Queen" mentions Elizabeth II but not Victoria, and the Japanese Occupation is dismissed in three sentences). The lack of an index and sufficient cross references is significant: "Arrow War" is not cross-referenced under "Anglo-Chinese Wars" or "Opium Wars," and "Education" and "Hong Kong and Macau Office" appear only under Hong Kong. Some entries (e.g., "Chinese Burial Customs") relate to Chinese culture but not specifically to the colonies in question. Nevertheless, the dictionary's uniqueness fills a subject void for many collections.- Kenneth W. Berger, Duke Univ. Lib., Durham, N.C.Copyright...

Charles Weatherill, South China Morning Post, August 17, 2002
For the period and the place, there is nothing quite like it.

Book Description
Lights and Shadows of a Macao Life, the title chosen by Harriett Low for her journal, aptly describes the conflicting emotions of the first American woman to live in China. Making a rude transition from the tranquility of Salem, Massachusetts into a world of sampans and sedan chairs, women with bound feet and men with queues, the lively young American records a detailed portrait of her life in Macao from 1829-1834. The constricted lifestyle of foreign merchants wives, forced by the Chinese to live in Macao while their husbands traded tea and opium in Canton: balls, operas, and picnics; Chinese customs and Catholic processions; true friendship and false;...
