Chinese Travelers to the Early Turkish Republic Paperback / softback
by Giray Fidan
In the first quarter of the 20th century, China was in turmoil, facing an existential crisis.
Chinese politicians and intellectuals looked to the Turkish Republic as a role model.
Turkey defeated foreign invading forces and renegotiated unfair treaties, adapted to the modern world, and initiated series of reforms in all walks of life.
Chinese travellers chronicled their observations, and included the notes of Shi Zhaoji, the first Chinese ambassador to the US, and Hu Hanmin, an early leader in the Kuomintang.
