Policing Resistance to the Imperial State

Policing Resistance to the Imperial State

(p.65) 3 Policing Resistance to the Imperial State
Crossing Empire's Edge

This chapter examines how the consular police dealt with political resistance to the imperial Japanese state throughout the informal empire in China. It begins with a discussion of the nature of colonial resistance and political dissent in Chinese treaty ports, particularly Shanghai. It then considers the Gaimushō's counterinsurgency operations in Jiandao and the attempt by the Fengtian consular police to harness local Korean collaborators in their fight against violent Korean resistance. It also explores a series of interrelated political security agreements in 1925 that affected the course of consular police evolution. The chapter shows that the Korean independence movement in exile, along with the emergence of formal communist organizations on the home islands, forced the Japanese state to allocate more consular police resources to political intelligence work.

Keywords:   consular police, political resistance, Japan, China, political dissent, Gaimushō, counterinsurgency, political security, Korean independence movement, communist organizations
