Macao: Mysterious Decay and Romance
Donald Pittis and Susan J Henders (eds)
Macau was probably the first European trading post, established as it was by the Portuguese in the 16th century, on the fringes of China for the purpose of trade with the country. Since then its fortunes have waxed and waned, settling into a reputation of being a more shady version of neighbouring Hong Kong. In this anthology the editors have gathered together visitors' accounts, extolling its glory and bemoaning its iniquity, from the earliest times up to the end of the 20th century. Very Good Paperback. 265 pages with a bibliography.
