Listen to the lecture and Q&A audio here

The book is an in-depth study of Nationalist tariff policy in China, fundamentally challenging the widely accepted idea that the key to the Communist seizure of power in China lay in the incompetence of Chiang Kai-shek’s Nationalist government.

Dr Felix Boecking is a senior lecturer in modern Chinese economic and political history at the University of Edinburgh. His research interests include China’s political economy in its historical context, the history of economics in the People’s Republic of China, and the history of China’s foreign relations.
