A Study of Chinese Boycotts, with Special Reference to Their Economic Effectiveness

By C. F. Remer; William B. Palmer | Go to book overview

PREFACE

The circumstances surrounding the undertaking of this study of Chinese boycotts are stated in Mr. MacMurray's introduction and in the pages which follow. It is important to add, however, that the work was carried on by the use of whatever materials were available in the United States, supplemented by such additional information as could be secured without delay in China and Japan. Our chief reliance has, of course, been upon trade reports and statistics and our important conclusions, therefore, rest upon sources which could not have been different if the work had been carried on in the Far East.

It is true, however, that a more adequate estimate of losses and a better account of methods might have been offered if we had been able to carry on our investigations in China and Japan. There is little doubt that other studies will follow ours, for the boycott is important enough to deserve continued study. We recognize that we have made but a small contribution though we feel that we ought to insist that this contribution is in a field of significant importance. We believe that boycotting on an international scale will be more frequently studied in the near future because we believe that it will be more frequently used.

Among those whom we wish to thank are Chinese and Japanese friends, and the officials of the government of the United States and of the Chinese, Japanese and British governments, as well as those of a number of European governments. We owe thanks to the members of the staff of various libraries, among them the Library of the University of Michigan, the Library of Congress, the New York Public Library, and the Library of the Department of Commerce in Washington. We desire to thank the staff of the Research Department of the Bank of China in Shanghai, and the staff of the Walter Hines Page School of International Relations in Baltimore.
