Policing Shanghai, 1927-1937 by Frederic E Wakeman( file )
10 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,457 libraries worldwide
Prewar Shanghai: casinos, brothels, Green Gang racketeers, narcotics syndicates, gun-runners, underground Communist assassins, Comitern secret agents. Frederic Wakeman's masterful study of the most colorful and corrupt city in the world at the time provides a panoramic view of the confrontation and collaboration between the Nationalist secret police and the Shanghai underworld. In detailing the life and politics of China's largest urban center during the Guomindang era, Wakeman covers an array of topics: the puritanical social controls implemented by the police; the regional differences that surfaced among Shanghai's Chinese, the influence of imperialism and Western-trained officials. Parts of this book read like a spy novel, with secret police, torture, assassination; and power struggles among the French, International Settlement, and Japanese consular police within Shanghai. Chiang Kai-shek wanted to prove that the Chinese could rule Shanghai and the country by themselves, rather than be exploited and dominated by foreign powers. His efforts to reclaim the crime-ridden city failed, partly because of the outbreak of war with Japan in 1937, but also because the Nationalist police force was itself corrupted by the city. Wakeman's exhaustively researched study is a major contribution to the study of the Nationalist regime and to modern Chinese urban history. It also shows that twentieth-century China has not been characterized by discontinuity, because autocratic government--whether Nationalist or Communist--has prevailed

The most feared man in China, Dai Li, was chief of Chiang Kai-shek's secret service during World War II. This sweeping biography of "China's Himmler," based on recently opened intelligence archives, traces Dai's rise from obscurity as a rural hooligan and Green Gang blood-brother to commander of the paramilitary units of the Blue Shirts and of the dreaded Military Statistics Bureau: the world's largest spy and counterespionage organization of its time

The Shanghai Badlands : wartime terrorism and urban crime, 1937-1941 by Frederic E Wakeman( Book )
11 editions published between 1996 and 2002 in English and held by 376 libraries worldwide
Between August 1937 and December 1941, the Chinese sectors of Shanghai were occupied by the Japanese, who surrounded the foreign concessions. As refugees crowded into the "solitary island" where the British and Americans continued to rule over the International Settlement until the attack on Pearl Harbor, terrorist wars broke out between Nationalist secret agents and the motley crew of puppet gangsters who supported the Japanese in exchange for the protection of their gambling casinos, brothels, and opium dens. The most intensely disputed area was the western suburb known as the Badlands, but warfare was not restricted to that zone of the city. A spate of daytime assassinations, bombings, and machine gun raids took place under the very noses of the authorities in the foreign concessions

Poisoned arrows : the Stalin-Choibalsan Mongolian massacres, 1921-1941 by Sh Sandag( Book )
3 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 224 libraries worldwide
"Poisoned Arrows: The Stalin-Choihalsan Mongolian Massacres, 1921-1941 reveals to an English-speaking readership for the first time the truth about the massacres conducted between 1921-1941 by the Stalinist KGB and its puppet Mongolian counterpart in converting the historic home of Genghis Khan into the world's second communist state and keeping it isolated from the world under Soviet domination for seventy years." "This book is based on secret archival documents and other rare materials to which the public was granted access following Mongolia's 1989-1990 democratic revolution. Sandag's father was a victim of the massacres, adding a personal element to the story. Drawing on his experience as a member of a prisoner's family and interviews with other survivors and their families, Sandag describes the reign of terror conducted by the "Green Hats" of Mongolia's Internal Security Ministry and how the Mongols survived a time of fear and mistrust."--BOOK JACKET
