It covers dedicated mailing and e-mail campaign to targeted media and organisations.This is the compelling story of 'Morrison of China' - an internationally renowned correspondent who not only brilliantly chronicled the period he lived in, but helped shaped its events.George Ernest Morrison first came to public attention in his native Australia when his strong sense of courage and devotion to reporting the truth led him, at only 20 years of age, to expose the Australian Kanaka slave trade. However, it was his work as a correspondent for "The Times" (London) in the decadent and dangerous Chinese capital at the turn of the century that brought him international fame. Then, as advisor to the fledgling Chinese government, he was a pivotal figure in the fall of the last Emperor and the birth of the Chinese Republic.
