Publisher Description

It is the early nineteenth century, when European traders and adventurers first began to penetrate the forbidding Chinese mainland. And it is in this exciting time and exotic place that a giant of an Englishman, Dirk Struan, sets out to turn the desolate island of Hong Kong into an impregnable fortress of British power—and to make himself supreme ruler: Tai-Pan!

#1 New York Times bestselling author James Clavell’s works have become beloved modern classics. This critically acclaimed historical novel is another fine example of a master at work.

PrimalOneKG ,

Strong people of many backgrounds struggling to start the colony of Hong Kong.

A powerful book about the trials and triumphs of being in charge, of being in love and finding pleasure in just being alive for the moment all set in a dramatic mix of Chinese and Europeans building Hong Kong from a small island and a safe harbor.

The Devil Struan!!

James Clavell tells a fantastic story here. The characters are so nostalgic and mighty, yet relatable and authentic to their faults - a good representation of life at it's fullest.
I have loved all Clavell's novels but this and Shogun are my favorites.
