(p.204) (p.205) Conclusion
Chinese Capitalists in Japan's New Order

Parks M. Coble

University of California Press

This concluding chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the experiences of Chinese capitalists during the Sino-Japanese War, particularly during the Japanese occupation of lower Yangzi. The results indicate that the romanticized view of the heroic industrialist does not fit the actions of the vast majority of the key business leaders in the lower Yangzi area. However, most Chinese businessmen also do not fit the profile of the collaborator. Most of the capitalists attempted to use foreign registration as a cover to preserve control over properties in the occupied areas, which indicates a desire to prevent Japanese control.

Keywords:   Chinese capitalists, Sino-Japanese War, Japanese occupation, lower Yangzi, heroic industrialists
