Shanghai: The Rise and Fall of a Decadent City

Stella Dong

Publisher: William Morrow & CompanyFormat: Paperback

Transformed from a swampland wilderness into a dazzling modern-day Babylon, the Shanghai that pre-dated Mao's cultural revolution was a city like no other: redolent with opium and underworld crime, booming with foreign trade, blessed with untold wealth and marred by abject squalor. Journalist Stella Dong captures all the exoticism, extremes and excitement of this legendary city as if it were a larger-than-life character in a fantastic novel. As insightful and scholarly as it is detailed and gripping, Shanghai is a “brilliant tableau of creative energy and decadent humanity” (Seattle Times).
