Carl Crow arrived in China in 1911, made Shanghai his home and founded the country’s first Western-style advertising agency. In Foreign Devils in the Flowery Kingdom, originally published in 1940, Carl relates his 25 years in China and the lessons he learnt. He was almost unique among foreign commentators of his era in taking the time and effort to understand and appreciate the Chinese and their culture while also providing a vivid portrait of foreign life in Shanghai – a city, which Crow predicted ‘will only now live in memories’.
