Colonialism in China was a piecemeal agglomeration that achieved its greatest extent in the first half of the twentieth century, the last edifices falling at the close of the century. The diversity of these colonial arrangements across China's landscape defies systematic characterization. This book investigates the complexities and subtleties of colonialism in China during the first half of the twentieth century. In particular, the contributors examine the interaction between localities and forces of globalization that shaped the particular colonial experiences characterizing much of China's experience at this time. In the process it is clear that an emphasis on interaction, synergy and hybridity can add much to an understanding of colonialism in Twentieth Century China based on the simple binaries of colonizer and colonized, of aggressor and victim, and of a one-way transfer of knowledge and social understanding. To provide some kind of order to the analysis, the chapters in this volume deal in separate sections with colonial institutions of hybridity, colonialism in specific settings, the social biopolitics of colonialism, colonial governance, and Chinese networks in colonial environments. Bringing together an international team of experts, Twentieth Century Colonialism and China is an essential resource for students and scholars of modern Chinese history and colonialism and imperialism.

"Africa was falling apart. But now it is coming together, and Africa and Africans are achieving greatness. The twenty-first century is significant for every African. In Things Come Together, Robert Rotberg extolls the successes and explains the struggles. Rotberg is one of the world's foremost authorities on African politics and society, and in this book he synthesizes his knowledge of the continent into a concise overview of the current state of Africa and where it is headed. To that end, Rotberg considers Africa's myriad peoples. The continent is experiencing explosive population growth and rapidly urbanizing. How are African states managing this epochal shift? He looks at how Africa's nations are governed, ranging from states with autocratic kleptocrats to democratized regimes that have made progress in achieving economic growth and battling corruption. He then turns to African economies, looking at growth levels, productivity, and persistent corruption. He concludes by filling in the picture, covering the effects of war, health care, wildlife management, varieties of religious belief, education, technology diffusion, and the character of both city and village life in this ever-changing region. Throughout this sweeping work, Rotberg deftly moves readers across the continent, from Nigeria to South Africa, from Kenya to Uganda, to name a few. While there are cross-continent commonalities related to governance, demographics, and economic performance, he shows the unique variations of who and what is African"--

The foreign establishment in early republican china had many facets: territory people, rights established by treaty or unilaterally asserted, armed force, diplomacy, religion, commerce, journalism, freebooting adventure, racial attitudes. Foreign Establishment in China in the Early Twentieth Century describes the dimensions of each of the principle guises in which the foreigner impinged upon the polity, economy, society, and mind of China.

Author: Robert A. Bickers
Using archival materials newly available in China and records in Britain and the US, Robert Bickers paints a detailed portrait of the traders, missionaries, businessmen, diplomats and settlers who constituted "Britain-in-China." Bickers argues that the British presence in China was dominated by urban settlers whose primary allegiance lay not with any grand imperial design but with their own communities and precarious livelihoods. This brought them into growing conflict with the Chinese population and the British imperial government. Bickers goes on to examine how the British state and its allies brought an end to the reign of freelance, settler imperialism on the China coast. At the same time, other British sectors, missionary and business, renegotiated their own relationship with their Chinese markets and the Chinese state and distanced themselves from the settler British.

In 19th-century Singapore and Malaya, much of the community's social life revolved around associations--neither secret or sinister as history has claimed--which offered the Chinese against alien administration and, in the case of minorities, against the dominant clans of the time. This book, the first to unearth both past and present records kept by these associations and to interview their elders, reveals from the inside how the Chinese community was organized, how its members treated each other, and what problems they faced.

This is the first history of Mongolia available in English which benefits from access to historic data that only became available following the collapse of the socialist regime in 1990. Accordingly, it highlights the role of international politics, especially the former Soviet Union, Russia, China and Japan, in the shaping of modern Mongolia s history. The volume actually comprises three books . Book One, entitled 'The Steppe Warriors', offers a history of Mongolia up to the 1911 revolution; Book Two, entitled Incarnations and Revolutionaries addresses political developments in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries (1920s); Book Three, entitled A Puppet Republic provides an in-depth analysis of the 1920s and 30s, concluding with the 1939 Haslhyn Gol Incident, The Second World War, the Post-war Map of Asia and the Fate of Mongolia s Independence."

This book examines the interwoven issues of sugar Java and the Dutch from a broadly post-colonial standpoint. Sugar's history forms one of the crucial meta-narratives of Western colonialism. The history of the commodity is integral to that long association between cane sugar and the overseas expansion of the Western powers that had its origins in the Atlantic islands in the fifteenth century. From there, it spread to the New World and, by the nineteenth century, into parts of Asia and the Pacific. The subsequent threat to cane sugar's pre-eminence as a sweetener, posed from the mid-nineteenth century onward by sugar made from beet, only served to further consolidate that connection. The colonial-metropolitan tie -- with its promise of protective tariffs and a secure home market -- became more than ever central to the industry's sustained development. In associated mode, colonial states renewed their efforts to subordinate land and labour to sugar's particular requirements. Only in the second half of the twentieth century was the nexus formally broken, leaving cane sugar as an often-potent legacy of colonialism for the post-colonial order. The commercial production of cane sugar in Java dated from the first half of the seventeenth century. It took place there until the early nineteenth century under the patronage of the Dutch East India Company and its successors. The actual business of manufacture, largely carried on by Chinese settlers, was working in rather varied relationships with Javanese workers and 'peasant' farmers. During the mid-nineteenth century decades, however, the industry was transformed. It became the first of its kind in Asia successfully to adopt the panoply ofsteam, steel and chemistry which formed the technological basis of industrialised sugar man
