Douglas Clark Book Launch: Shanghai Lawyer

Diplomat, lawyer, judge, soldier, spy, spymaster: just a few of the positions American, Norwood Allman, held in his 30 plus years in China. Shanghai Lawyer is Allman’s first-hand account of his amazing 27 years in China from 1914 to the Japanese occupation of Shanghai in 1941.

Douglas Clark, himself a “Shanghai Lawyer”, has annotated Allman’s classic bestseller to dig up dirt, name names and tell tales. Over 200 hundred contemporaneous photos, cartoons, clippings and historical papers illustrate Allman’s story in full. Doug will take us along Allman’s extraordinary life in China as well his later life as a spymaster in the OSS and CIA.
