Race, Law, and "The Chinese Puzzle" in Imperial Britain by Sascha Auerbach
English | ISBN: 023060949X | edition 2009 | PDF | 280 pages | 3,2 mb

This book examines the historical evolution of Chinese communities in early twentieth-century Britain and their significance in the development of race as a category in British law, politics, and culture. During this period, fears about the moral and economic impact of Chinese immigration, amplified by press sensationalism and lurid fictional portrayals of London’s “Chinatown” as a den of vice and iniquity, prompted mass arrests, deportations, and mob violence. Even after Chinatown was demolished and its inhabitants dispersed, the stereotype of the Chinese criminal mastermind and other “yellow peril” images remained as permanent aspects of British culture.

It shares stories of those who have lived, fought and died in conflicts involving Britain and the Commonwealth.
This programme, presented by Falkland’s veteran and charity campaigner Simon Weston CBE, looks at ten key objects from the IWM's collection.
