Abstract

Reviews 47 interpreting some important aspects of the history veiled within these sources, and he has succeeded in revealing the three goals of Hu Hanmin's late political activities: opposition to Chiang, opposition to the Communists, and opposition to the Japanese. The first priority was to overthrow Chiang. To achieve this, Hu maintained ties with KMT leaders, provincial elites, and military commanders. As a co-founder of the KMT, Hu was a dominant force in China's politics, even though he was in fact out of power during the five years explored in this study. And although he lived far from Nanjing, he still exercised a powerful influence over the KMT party apparatus and on the state itself. Chen Hongmin's book is a valuable contribution to the study of China in the 1930s because it searches further into the existing sources, uncovers valuable new material, and provides insightful comments on human relationships and politics during a still largely unknown yet crucial period in China's modern history. Patrick Fuliang Shan Patrick Fuliang Shan is an assistant professor in the Department of History at Grand Valley State University in Michigan specializing in modern Chinese history.
