Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the ways in which Korean radicals in China and Japan were exposed to, and subsequently accepted, anarchism in order to highlight the role of, and tension between, national consciousness and transnational concerns in their conversion to anarchism. It demonstrates the complex relationship between nationalism and anarchism in a colonial situation like Korea, annexed by Japan in 1910. The chapter also examines the activities and projects that Korean anarchists jointly planned and conducted with their counterparts in China and Japan in order to demonstrate the important role of transnationalism in shaping the rise and character of Korean anarchism. It argues that there were key transnational linkages in the history of Korean anarchism, which are usually missing from Korean nationalist accounts of the history of the movement. Education provided another important site of interaction between Korean and other anarchists in China.

Keywords:China; Japan; Korean anarchism; transnationalism
