Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jonathan Kaufman delivers an epic, multigenerational story of two rival Jewish dynasties—the Sassoon and Kadoorie families, both originally from Baghdad—who flourished in Shanghai and Hong Kong as 20th-century China surged into the modern era.

“Kaufman writes with style and strikes a careful balance between holding the families accountable for their ‘colonial assumptions’ and celebrating their accomplishments. This richly detailed account illuminates an underexamined overlap between modern Jewish and Chinese history.”
—Publishers Weekly
