Trading Freedom explores the surprisingly rich early history of U.S.-China trade from the late 18th through the late 19th centuries and its unexpected impact on the developing republic. Norwood weaves together interdisciplinary threads from the worlds of commerce, foreign policy and immigration to make it clear that from its earliest days the United States has been closely intertwined with China. Early reviewers have called the book “impressively ambitious” and “rich with insights.”</p><img alt="Cover of "Trading Freedom: How Trade with China Defined Early America"" src="/ForTheRecord%20Images/history-20220121-trading-freedom.jpg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />Uncropped VerticalGP0|#e59b718f-f2f3-4654-8986-5eea60d4f90b;L0|#0e59b718f-f2f3-4654-8986-5eea60d4f90b|Publications;GTSet|#0a3b6244-764a-4413-b2f1-4b4c15da868c2022.00000000000https://www.cas.udel.edu/Lists/ForTheRecord/DispForm.aspx?ID=142
