The Opium Wars: Exploring the Addiction of Empires from Beginning to End



Written by Adrian Ramos, History Compacted

Narrated by Michael Goodrick

Duration 2 hours and 15 minutes

What’s the best way to take over a country?

China loomed large on the world stage. Wealth, power, and hundreds of years of rule by the Manchus of the Qing Dynasty catapulted them to new heights, but with power and prestige came those who would do anything to usurp their authority and undermine their sense of stability.

The British Empire and its faithful allies devised a masterful plan and executed it with stark precision. Vicious lies, cheating, and stealing were only the beginning of what they had in store for the nation.

What followed would ignite the Opium Wars and unleash a devastating wave of widespread narcotic abuse.

  • I made it to a junior in high school before I had ever heard of the opium wars, and when I did, it fascinated me. The book is a very good intro to the subject for anyone who wants an overview of the entire war. If anyone wants to make up for the lacking in the education system, this book does a wonderful job.

    • Thanks so much for adding your thoughts, Clay. I also find the Opium Wars a fascinating topic! When I was younger I thought history was ‘boring’, but the opposite is true. The older I get, the more interesting I find it!
      Thanks for using AudioFreebies!
      Cheers, Amy
