Part 1 of my new series on the infamous Opium Wars, when Britain and later other European empires and the United States fought a series of wars in China to gain control of that nation’s trade and wealth. In this episode we examine how opium was smuggled into China, and how the First Opium War erupted with terrible consequences for China.
