Few commodities are as synonymous with any civilization as tea with China. This book analyzes the multifaceted influence of tea production and the tea trade upon Fujian, a premier tea-growing region, illuminating the economic, social, fiscal, and environmental ramifications of China's involvement with a dynamic world economy. Today, as contemporary China increasingly opens up to foreign trade, the historical experience documented here takes on a renewed importance.Über den Autor:
