I am holding the last few precious copies of my book on China. Contact me at arhicks56@hotmail.com and I can send you one before they become a rare out of print item.

The book has sold steadily so it would be sad if it dies and is not reprinted. I really must do some revisions, adding in the newly discovered images that are in the post below this one, and make sure that the story continues to be told.

Copies are also available in the US from Quaker Books at Pendle Hill, in Hong Kong and from Earnshaw Books in Shanghai.

The world was even more tumultuous then than it is now but somehow I cannot imagine today the principled stand and example that was set by the protagonists of my book. Have we since then become more self-obsessed and selfie-ish?
