I would like to read a history of the Opium wars in China. Is there any good books to recommend?

It would be good if they are available for the Amazon kindle.

Thanks

Not quite what you want, but Taipan by James Clavell is an enjoyable fictional tale from around this period in time.

I just want to learn more about the period and events which lead up to the Opium wars, how the Chinese were defeated and the aftermath and impact of the wars.
