The 1934-35 Standard Guide Book. With a New Foreword by Peter Hibbard
“Whoopee! Let’s go places and do things!” So say the authors of All About Shanghai, the classic guidebook from the middle of the roaring 1930s. Written with first-hand authority and an enthusiasm that is truly infectious, the authors captured and bottled the madness,excitement, depravity and fast bucks of the greatest boomtown the world had ever seen. The book, originally intended as a guide for newcomers and visitors,is today a fascinating portrait of old Shanghai in its heyday, enjoying every minute of the ride.
