(p.67) Chapter 4 Puppet Governments and Chinese Capitalists
Chinese Capitalists in Japan's New Order

Parks M. Coble

University of California Press

This chapter focuses on Japan's creation of puppet governments in China. These regimes differed from purely colonial administrations, such as those in Taiwan and Korea, in that they were nominally independent entities. They were created on the belief that such governments could assist in controlling conquered territory by gaining the support or at least acquiescence of the population. However, the Japanese structures were marred by several major flaws, and their impotence both gutted their claims to be legitimate, autonomous governments and impeded the efforts of the Japanese to get individuals of prestige to join their cause.
