Part of the CERC Studies in Comparative Education book series (CERC, volume 17)


Wang Fengxian was born on the Changshan islands, to the northeast of the city of Dalian in 1928. His early life and history was greatly affected by the turbulent developments in this part of China over the first half of the 20th century. For Japan, Dalian was a crucial entry point for its incursions into Northeastern China, which it dominated and effectively colonized from 1931 to 1945, as it had done Korea from much earlier. Russia’s need for an ice-free port on its Eastern coast meant that rivalry between the two powers was an important part of the history of the region up to 1949.
