The China JournalProvides a new perspective for viewing unequal treaties rhetoric as a dynamic concept linked up with the construction of national identity.
— Samual Chan
China's Unequal Treaties offers the first systematic study, based on primary sources, of the linguistic development and polemical uses of the expression "Unequal Treaties" in different historical and political contexts from 1842 to the present. This book illuminates how various Chinese political forces have defined and redefined the past using the framework of the "Unequal Treaties."
