'There has been comparativly little on Macau; this book is not a history, but rather a story of the colony, centered around typical personalities of the time'. Based on the author's readings of Portuguese, Dutch and Japanese language materials; (author regrets lack of knowledge of Chinese). So he consulted sources which reflect something besides the prejudices of 'the missionary praying on his little Bethel, the diplomat enmeshed in the coils of punctilio, and the foreign trader lying drunk on the floor of his club' as noted in the introductory! 298pp..
