Author: Dikötter, Frank
Title: Exotic commodities : modern objects and everyday life in China

New York : Columbia University Press, c2006

“Exotic Commodities is the first book to chart the consumption and spread of foreign goods in China from the mid-nineteenth century to the advent of communism in 1949. Richly illustrated and revealing, this volume recounts how exotic commodities were acquired and adapted in a country commonly believed to have remained “hostile toward alien things” during the industrial era.”
