Monster of the Twentieth Century

In my fourth chapter, I examine the broader social movement against imperialism that developed in the first decade of the twentieth century. I begin by considering the campaign led by Kōtoku Shūsui against looting by Japanese troops during the Boxer intervention. I place this campaign within the context of his activism as a reporter for the popular newspaper Yorozu Chōhō and his participation in the Band of Idealists.
