MIT Visualizing Cultures has just mounted the first in a three part series on the Opium War entitled, "The First Opium War: The Anglo-Chinese War of 1839-1842." The essay was written by Yale Historian Peter Perdue and has taken nearly a year of research and production by the VC team. New units on the second Opium War and the Opium War as viewed by Japan will be mounted in the coming weeks.
