Description The three parts of this collection make available all British Foreign Office files dealing with China, Hong Kong and Taiwan between 1919 and 1948: 1) 1919-1929: Kuomintang, CCP and the Third International 2) 1930-1937: The Long March, Civil War in China and the Manchurian Crisis 3) 1938-1948: Open Door, Japanese War and the Seeds of Communist Victory. The revolution which overthrew the millennia-old imperial system heralded a period of upheaval in China which would last for the best part of forty years. Due to the unique nature of the relationship between Britain and China, these formerly restricted British government documents, consisting of diplomatic despatches, letters, maps, reports of court cases, biographies of leading personalities, summaries of events and diverse other materials, provide unprecedented levels of detail into one of the most turbulent periods of Chinese history.
