"High lights, low lights, tael lights" is a guide to Shanghai written in 1936. This is not your normal guide, but this is the kind of guide that give you a real uncensored view of how Shanghai was in 1930s from the perspective of two non-Chinese that live there. An rather controversial view, I bet especially in 1936 (the original publication date)
The guide is only a 100 pages, its an easy and quick read. It consists of four chapters. The first introduces Shanghai from that time. Shanghai was divided in three different districts that were governed interdependently... the Chinese, the French, and the international district. The second chapter describes the daily streetlife, the kind of shops and the kind of sounds. The third chapter dives into the Shanghai nightlife and all this things you shouldn't know about it. The last chapter called "there are also some Chinese in Shanghai" gives an rather interesting perspective of the local people from the eyes of two foreigners.
The book is very funny, especially if you know Shanghai and can actually recognize some of the districts. Some descriptions are still true, though most are descriptions of Shanghai from that time... and it has completely changed at this time. I've enjoyed reading this guide to Shanghai, laughed out loud many times, and wish I could go back in time to actually experience Shanghai from 1936. Recommended, especially when interested in Shanghai.Shanghai: High Lights, Low Lights, Tael Lights Overview
