Policing the Shanghai International Settlement, 1894-1945 

These files represent a large portion of the archives of the British-run municipal police force based in Shanghai's former International Settlement. The time period covered by these files extends from 1894 to 1945, and the most extensive coverage is provided by the Special Branch dossier files, which date from 1929-1945. Many files are organized around a particular topic and contain different kinds of source material. For example, a report on a major strike includes memoranda regarding that strike, plus supporting reports, handbills, translations of Chinese press coverage, and clippings from the English-language press.
