The End of Exterritoriality in China

Excerpt

The purpose of this work is to present as briefly as can be done with lucidity the conditions and circumstances that have attended the institution of exterritoriality in China and the reasons and methods of the Chinese Government in bringing the system to an end. With its termination in China exterritoriality, except as it applies to diplomats and special ambassadors, probably will fall into disuse, as China is the last important country where it has been in force.

Since it is hoped that this compilation will be of use to students of politics and international law a good deal of relevant documentary matter is introduced as context and appendices.

Although the author has been an employee of the Chinese Government during a considerable time when events related in this work were taking place, and still is, the opinions and views that are expressed are not to be taken as those of the Chinese Government except when so stated. There should be no difficulty in distinguishing the author's personal views and opinions from those culled from other sources. It is not implied, when views stated in reports made by the author to the Chinese Government coincide with action of the Government taken afterward, that the action was due to those reports. Those quotations serve to indicate phases and sidelights of the political scene that bear on the negotiations and their outcome and which governments as a rule are inhibited from publishing.
