about

Colonial civil servant, Confucian scholar, and collector of Chinese art, Sir James Stewart Lockhart spent more than forty years in Hong Kong and Weihaiwei - the former British leased territory in northern China. His career reflects tension and upheaval in the emerging colony of Hong Kong and in a China rapidly giving way to civil war.

Shiona Airlie has spent the last thirty years researching the British in Hong Kong and Weihaiwei and is also the biographer of Sir Reginald Johnston.

Editorial Reviews

This biography of Stewart Lockhart tells much more than the life and work of one man as it shows how individuals such as Lockhart were caught up in the history of the China region and in the relationship between Great Britain and China in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
