Everything you need to understand or teach Noble House by James Clavell.
Noble House is the continuation of James Clavell's exciting story of the biggest and most important trading house in Hong Kong. The original tai-pan devised a list of promises that all succeeding tai-pans must swear to uphold. Now a new tai-pan, Ian Dunross is to be sworn in and he also is expected to swear to uphold the pledge.
The continuing story of the Noble House, Asia's biggest trading company, is as exciting as in the previous novels. The new tai-pan faces many problems that his predecessors faced along with involvement with Chinese spies, a Russian spy ring, drugs and arms smuggling, and now stock market manipulations. Ian must uphold the legacy of Dirk Struan, the original tai-pan and honor the oath that all tai-pans must swear to uphold. He also inherited the legacy of intense rivalry and hatred for Quillan Gornt and his rival company.
