Strangers at the gate 
Book Design




Wei Feide (December 12, 1937 - September 14, 2006)
The main "gate" of China in the Qing Dynasty was Guangzhou, and "strangers" were foreigners. As the name suggests, "The Birthday of the Gate" is related to the history of foreigners breaking into Guangzhou (China's gate), and it is about the foreign invasion of China by the Opium War. But this book is mainly not based on this research. Instead, it uses the two Opium Wars of the British invasion of China as a clue to study the social dynamics of Guangzhou and Guangdong Province during this historical period, such as government, gentlemen, regiments, peasants, religion, The attitudes of secret societies and other foreign countries; their activities, their mutual relations and changes, thus revealing some trends in the beginning stage of China's modern history.

魏斐德(1937年12月12日——2006年9月14日)
清代中国的主要“大门”是广州,“陌生人”即外国人。顾名思义,《大门口的陌生日》是与外国人闯入广州(中国大门)的历史有关,是关于鸦片战争外国入侵中国的。但这本书主要不以此研究为主,而是以英国侵略中国的两次鸦片战争为线索,研究这一历史时期广州和广东省的社会动态,如官府、绅士、团练、农民、宗教、秘密社团等对外国的态度;各自的活动、相互间的关系以及变化,从而揭示中国近代史的开始阶段的某些动向。
