Chapter Summary

In summarizing the discussion contained in this book, its important theme is divided into two phases. From the historical point of view, the unequal treaties aroused the unanimous demand of the people of China for a movement to rid themselves of humiliations and become a strong nation. The Revolution to overthrow the Manchus occurred because of this, and the War of Resistance and the movement for national reconstruction also occurred because of this. From the standpoint of the changing international situation: While the Second World War is in progress, it is only through China's War of Resistance that the various nations of Asia can become firm in their opposition to aggression; and victory in the World War depends on the efforts of the Asiatic nations. Asia's stabilization is the guarantee of world peace, and the liberation of the peoples of Asia also means the liberation of all mankind.

Keywords: Asia's stabilization; China's independence; China's War of Resistance; Manchu; national reconstruction; second world war; unequal treaties; world peace
