The First Anglo-Chinese War broken out in 1840-42. it was a war to show about the reaction of China to the Western country. Before First Anglo-Chinese War, China was a closed country, but after the War, the door of China became to opien. So the First Anglo-Chinese War was very important in Chinese History. But why the First Anglo-Chinese War broken out? What is the nature of the First Anglo-Chinese War. To the nature of the First Anglo-Chinese War, some people said that it was caused by opium trade. But in my own opinion, the First Anglo-Chinese War was more suitable for the name of the commercial war. Traditionally, British look the trade as very important. Most of the war that British declared just because of trade. In 17th centry, British were already trade with China.

It is because British government knew that opium was not a moral thing. So British government would not fight with China just because of the opium. Although British earned a lot of silver. In the opium trade, British government thought if China could open her market, Britain must earn a lot of money too. Because opium was not a moral thing, so if the British could made choice, they won't see opium to China. Moreover, if British government really treat opium important, then why British government did not demand China in Treaty of Nanijng to make opium become legal. So we can see that the First Anglo-Chinese War were mainly caused by the ordinary trade, but not the opium trade. Also some people said that if opium were replaced by cotton, the war still would broke out. I agree on this.because opium just as an excuse to force China to open her market. Whatever opium or cotton, the only aim for British were opened China's market. Some people said that the nature of the First Anglo-Chinese War was different cultural. ...read more.
