This chapter focuses on the history of Chiang Kai-shek's Shanghai Station during the period from 1932 to 1935. It explains that Shanghai was always Dai Li's primary arena of secret service activity where his key missions were to oppose the Communists and to do away with dissidents who used the international settlements in the city as a haven and refuge. It suggests that the most onerous burden shared by Shanghai Station agents was general surveillance and highlights Chiang Kai-shek's granting of Dai Li the authority over the Main Detective Brigade of the Song-Hu Garrison Command. It discusses the role of Wang Xin-heng in the staffing the detective brigades ad the role of the Special Services Department (SSD) in the Noulens affair.

Keywords:   Shanghai Station, Chiang Kai-shek, Dai Li, surveillance, detective brigades, Wang Xin-heng, SSD, Noulens affair
