(p.xviii) (p.1) Introduction
Chinese Capitalists in Japan's New Order

Parks M. Coble

University of California Press

This introductory chapter explains the coverage of this book, which is about the experiences of Chinese capitalists during the Japanese occupation of Lower Yangzi. The book details the wartime situation of Chinese entrepreneurs, discusses how they survived or failed to survive the war, and analyzes their relationships with the occupying forces. It suggests that the war wrought enormous damage on the physical plants of Chinese businesses, disrupted markets, devastated transportation, and reduced Chinese currency to worthless paper. The book argues that the war left a strong imprint on the organization and operation of Chinese business.

Keywords:   Chinese capitalists, Lower Yangzi, Japanese occupation, markets, transportation, Chinese currency
