Chapter Summary

Britain's relations with Japan during the period were neither static nor was British foreign policy towards Japan confined to a monolithic view. Rather, the relationship was in a state of constant development as different groups sought to influence foreign policymakers. The great strength of the Chronicle lay in the quality of its writing. The Japan Chronicle network had at its centre two newspapers, the Japan Chronicle and the North-China Daily News, which shared a common editorial line on a number of issues, especially in relation to the broad church of the British world, but were separated by the editorial positions they adopted on the Empire and on Chinese nationalism. No evidence has been found that any of the China papers in the Chronicle network accepted a Foreign Ministry subsidy, although one, Sheldon Ridge's Peking Gazette, was subsidized by Nanjing.
