Shanghai and the Yangzi Delta, From Past to Present, The New Yangzi River Vol.I
Published by Marshall Cavendish, Singapore
This is an illustrated travel guide to the entire Shanghai Municipality (Shanghai Shi), where I have lived for nearly six years since 1998. It covers not only the downtown city center but the outlying districts of Songjiang, Qingpu, Jiading, Baoshan, and Chongming Island. It begins with a 96 page history of Shanghai. Emphasis is given to the history and traditional culture of this region, although modern developments and current events are included to bring the story up to the present. All photos, research and text are by me.
