At the Crossroads of Empires

This chapter demonstrates that the links to Huang Yanpei as well as Du Yuesheng allowed certain publications such as New Life Weekly to escape the censor's axe when speaking out against the Japanese during the National Salvation Movement. This study of the New Life Weekly case sheds new light on state–society relations in China during the Nanjing decade (1927–1937). The operation of the New Life Weekly reveals that elites involved in the anti-Japanese movement had close ties and used their social networks with state officials to guarantee the stability of their businesses, including those openly critical of the regime. It is noted that the state, local elites, and the news media played a significantly role in constructing public opinion. The New Life Weekly showed that anti-Japanese publications and activities were inhibited by the state in defense of Japanese imperialism.
