Studies on Kuomintang’s Propaganda of New Equal Treaties During the Anti-Japanese War



During the Second World War, in order to support China’s Anti-Japanese War, US and UK have announced abolition of the previous unequal treaties to China, and signed the new equal treaties. Taking full advantage of these new equal treaties, Kuomintang (KMT) has launched propaganda of the new treaties to serve its wartime politics. In this process, KMT’s “revolutionary” image has been set up, as well as Chiang Kai Shek’s totalitarian dictatorship has been glorified and the KMT party‘s interests served; on the other hand, Wang’s puppet government has been struck, price-fixing policy has been publicized and the overall situation served. Therefore, it reflects the multi-faceted characteristics of KMT’s wartime politics: While adhering to fight against Japan, KMT took advantage of the monopoly status of state power to achieve its political dividends.
