Opium Regimes

This chapter examines the dramatic public incident in the opium tug-of-war: the anti-opium movement that broke out in the streets of Nanjing in December 1943. It narrates how university students took to the streets to smash opium dens and to demand that the Wang regime take a more active role in stamping out opium consumption; and by so doing, loosen Japan's control. The chapter notes that the Chinese in occupied areas were not as quiescent as resistance propaganda liked to suggest.

Keywords:   anti-opium movement, Nanjing, university students, Wang regime, opium consumption, Japan
