Chapter Summary

This chapter emphasises a number of soundings rather than by continuous linear argument, the difference between British and American interests, particularly in relation to the Overseas Chinese. A more important factor, in some ways, than the conditions in mainland China which occupied the Americans, the chapter examines military and political (and racial) factors involving the Overseas Chinese. British fears about the future of India's relations with China are outlined, a summary of the issues in North Burma is given, and the chapter concludes with a consideration of Anglo-Chinese relations in Malaya, Singapore and Hong Kong. However that may be, of all the issues at stake between Britain, the US and China during the Second World War, this unstable compromise between two nations of shopkeepers is what has survived.

Keywords:Anglo-Chinese relations; Britain; China; Overseas Chinese
