34: The Boxer Rebellion
The Boxer Rebellion China during the late nineteenth century was in turmoil from external and internal forces. The underlining internal pressures were exacerbated by the thrust of western imperialism and exploitation. Imperialism and the west were the catalyst for the Boxer Uprising. The ingredients of descent and conflict were always present in the late nineteenth century. China had its difficulties without the west’s intrusion.

I will also argue, that the way the Chinese government choose to deal with the West compounded its problems. There were major decisions ...

The Chinese Communist revolution, and the foreign policy of the regime to which it has given rise, have several roots, each of which ... one would tend to expect of a movement seemingly so convulsive.
