Citing Macau as a city distinct from any other in China with its blend of African, Indian, Malay, and Portuguese influences, Professor Sit describes its role in contributing to East-West exchange as undoubtedly greater than any other city in the world--longer than Hong Kong--and as the only “foreigners ward” in China to exist continuously for 500 years. He liberally illustrates Macau’s history with drawings, maps, graphs, and charts. Annotation ©2015 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (
