The Opium War by Julia Lovell. Pretty much the standard version repeated by Chinese everywhere, although it does debunk a few claims, namely 1)That ALL British involved were at fault- Charles Elliot, who was in charge of the British during the First Opium War, was a decent chap.The same cannot be said for Henry Parkes, who was in charge of the British during the Second Opium War.

Firstly, Palmerston was originally a Tory, and only became a Whig in 1828 (dang word limit)
