Here is an account of the First Opium War as told by its protagonist, Commission Lin. Lin receives his appointment from Chinaas Emperor. He is charged with eradicating opium from China forever. Commissioner Lin encounters four forms of social death when he ends the opium trade: decadence, revolution, anarchy, and war. Widespread opium addiction produces weakness and decay. Lin rejuvenates society by restoring Confucian discipline to it. The economic hegemony of the opium traders is overthrown after a brief revolution. Lin confiscates opium supplies and introduces the death penalty for opium offenses, although unemployment and illness combine to create widespread anarchy. Lin is compelled to re-impose order over this wave of crime and chaos. China and Great Britain then wage war over the future of China and the opium trade. It is here that The Opium War through Chinese Eyes is finally brought to life.
