Books on Shanghai

Madame Mao's Dowry is not a book store but we are sometimes asked to carry the printed outcome of the labour of local writers. They are usually books with a relatively short print run, often privately printed and always with an appeal to our customers. They are, not surprisingly, always related to Shanghai and Modern China, and they all have a strong graphic style. Most of all, they are all books that we like and are happy to recommend.
