Robert Bickers

SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2018 WOLFSON HISTORY PRIZE

The extraordinary and essential story of how China became the powerful country it is today.

Even at the high noon of Europes empires China managed to be one of the handful of countries not to succumb. Invaded, humiliated and looted, China nonetheless kept its sovereignty. Robert Bickers major new book is the first to describe fully what has proved to be one of the modern eras most important stories: the long, often agonising process by which the Chinese had by the end of the 20th century regained control of their own country.

Out of China uses a brilliant array of unusual, strange and vivid sources to recreate a now fantastically remote world: the corrupt, lurid modernity of pre-War Shanghai, the often tiny patches of extra-territorial land controlled by European powers (one of which, unnoticed, had mostly toppled into a river), the entrepots of Hong Kong and Macao, and the myriad means, through armed threats, technology and legal chicanery, by which China was kept subservient. 

Today Chinese nationalism stays firmly rooted in memories of its degraded past - the quest for self-sufficiency, a determination both to assert Chinas standing in the world and its outstanding territorial claims, and never to be vulnerable to renewed attack. History matters deeply to Beijings current rulers - and Out of China explains why. Format Paperback | 576 pages

Out of China: How the Chinese Ended the Era of Western Domination is a continuation of Bickers’ earlier book, The Scramble for China, 1832–1914. He is interested in the construction, development and fate of the foreign presence in China and how the Chinese adapted to, defended themselves against and manipulated the foreign presence. It’s difficult to force a book of this scope and ambition into a category, but Bickers’ interest is clearly in social and cultural history.
