Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the experiences of the chemical and match industrialists in China during the Sino-Japanese War. It describes the experiences of Fan Xudong, Wu Yunchu, and Liu Hongsheng, and compares their experiences with those of the textile manufacturers, flour millers, and department-store owners. The findings indicate that these three companies seem to fit the patriotic nationalist narrative, but a close reading of their wartime experiences reveals the same patterns of reaction we have seen in the textile and consumer industries.

Keywords: chemical industrialists; match industrialists; China; Sino-Japanese War; Fan Xudong; Wu Yunchu; Liu Hongsheng; patriotic nationalist narrative
