"Free Trade's First Missionary: Sir John Bowring in Europe and Asia" by HKU Press

“John Bowring (1792–1872) was one of the most interesting and influential of Hong Kong’s Governors. The career of this polymath exemplified an understanding of the relationship between economic and political freedom. This scholarly and very readable biography, written by one of Asia’s most distinguished journalists, shows how free trade became part of Hong Kong’s DNA.” —Chris Patten, Governor of Hong Kong, 1992–97
