Chapter Summary

The Great Powers' appreciation of China deepened with the development of the War of Resistance. However, to advance from this to the attainment of the major objective, the abolition of the unequal treaties, required vigorous diplomatic efforts on the part of the Nationalist Government. This chapter discusses the spirit of Chinese nationalism. 1942 marked the hundredth anniversary of the first unequal treaties with the Great Powers, concluded in the latter part of the Ch'ing dynasty. China's War of Resistance has become part of the World War against aggression. The Nationalist Revolution marks the realization of the principle of nationalism, from we must advance to the fulfillment of the principles of democracy and the people's livelihood. Sun Yat-sen divided the process of revolutionary reconstruction into three periods, Military Government, Political Tutelage, and Constitutional Government, but the fundamental task in each concerns the development of education, military affairs, and economics.

Keywords: Ch'ing dynasty; Chinese nationalism; national reconstruction; nationalist revolution; new equal treaties; Sun Yat-sen; war of resistance
