From the book jacket: “By the 1930s, the Sassoons had been doing business in China for a century, rivaled in wealth and influence by only one other dynasty—the Kadoories. These two Jewish families, both originally from Baghdad, stood astride Chinese business and politics for more than 175 years, profiting from the Opium Wars; surviving Japanese occupation; courting Chiang Kaishek; and losing nearly everything as the Communists swept into power.”
This is a fascinating little-known chapter of Jewish history.
Cost: $25 Read the first two chapters for the first class.
