Harbin of the 1920s was viewed by Westerners as a world turned upside down. The Chinese government had taken over administration of the Russian-founded Chinese Eastern Railway concession, and its large Russian population. This account of the decade-long multi-ethnic and multinational administrative experiment in North Mandchuria reveals that China not only created policies to promote Chinese sovereignty but also instituted measures to protect the Russian minority. This is a historical examination of how an ethnic, cultural, and racial majority coexisted with a minority of a different culture and race. it restores to history the national influences that have shaped northern China and Chinese nationalism.
