Prof. Shigeru Akita (Professor of Global History, Osaka University): British Economic Interests and the International Order of Asia in the 1930s
January 7, 2020, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
The purpose of this talk is to reconsider the nature and formation of the ‘International Order of Asia’ in the 1930s in the light of new historiographical developments and to present a framework for the reconsideration of the ‘International Order of East Asia’ in the 1950s from the perspective of the continuities from previous decades. The main focus of the argument is to evaluate the role played by the United Kingdom in the formation of the ‘International Order of Asia’ in the 1930s.
