Clark, Douglas, author. Gunboat justice : British and American law courts in China and Japan (1842-1943).
volume 1. White man, white law, white gun (1842-1900) -- volume 2. Destruction, disorder and defiance (1900-1927) -- volume 3. Revolution, resistance and resurrection (1927-1943). Foreign gunboats forced China, Japan and Korea to open to the outside world in the mid-19th century. The treaties signed included rules forbidding local courts from trying foreigners; or, "extraterritoriality." Britain and the United States established consular courts in all three countries and, as trade grew, the British Supreme Court for China and Japan and the United States Court for China. These courts for many decades—over 100 years in China—dispensed British and American justice in the Far East. Extraterritoriality had a huge impact, which continues to this day, on how China and Japan view the world. This book tells its history through the fascinating cast of characters both on and before the bench and the many challenging issues the courts faced including war, riots, rebellion, corruption, murder, infidelity, and, even, a failed hanging. Doug Clark, a practicing lawyer who has lived in China, Japan and Korea for over 25 years, has trawled through dusty archives around the world to bring back to life this long-forgotten exotic world.

Herbert Giles was one of the most prominent Sinologists of the late 19th century and early 20th century and this book was in its era one of the best-selling and most authoritative books on the topic. Originally published in 1902, Giles’commentary, based on six lectures delivered at Columbia University in New York, still have a value for anyone trying to figure out the conundrum that is China. Herbert Allen Giles (1845-1935) the author and presenter of these lectures, was a British diplomat and sinologist, educated at Charterhouse. He modified a Mandarin Chinese Romanization system established by Thomas Wade earlier, resulting in the Wade-Giles Chinese transliteration system. He was a diplomat to China (1867-1892). He was British Vice Consul at Pagoda Island (1880-83) and Shanghai (1883-85) and Consul at Tamsui (1885-91) and at Ningpo (1891-93) who later became the second professor of Chinese at Cambridge, succeeding Wade, after living in Aberdeen, Scotland. Postal map spelling is also based on the Wade-Giles system described in his A Chinese-English Dictionary. Amongst his other works are Chinese Sketches (1882), China and the Chinese (1902), Religions of Ancient China (1905), The Civilization of China (1911) and China and the Manchus (1912).

There are many formal histories of those pivotal and turbulent times but Jack Jones is among the few foreigners to have written contemporary accounts of day-to-day life there. Together with his fellow members of the Friends Ambulance Unite "China Convoy", his long struggle to bring medical supplies and services to the poorest regions of China is vividly evoked in this book. Written by Jones as articles for the China Convoy's newsletter and lost and unread for more than half a century, these recently discovered accounts found in Quaker archives in London and Philadelphia tell of the remarkable story of how the China Convoy team battled against all the odds in life-threatening situations to help relieve the overwhelming suffering of the Chinese people.
