Rate this:
The establishment and development of the Chinese Christian community in Hong Kong during the 19th century was instrumental in promoting foreign trade and commerce in China. Educated in Western culture and versed in the English language by missionaries, the Chinese Christian was a person who stood between two cultures. This book examines the history of Chinese Christians, many of whom became middlemen to the Western world--interpreters, translators, and advisors to government officials.
