About this item

Wang describes how China, unable to repel foreign aggression during the final century of imperial rule, was forced to grant foreign powers access to treaty ports and inland waters, tariff authority, land leases, concessions, extra-territoriality, and troop presence, severely damaging China's sovereignty. He also reviews efforts by Republican and Communist China to abrogate and reverse the damaging legacy of unequal treaties amidst the power changes in the warlord-dominated government in Beijing, the national unification efforts of the Southern revolutionary movement, and the ascendance of the Chinese Communist Party. This second volume covers the Nanjing Nationalist Government's regime from 1928 to its fall, and the years from 1949, when the People's Republic of China was established, to 1999 when Macau was recovered.
