Description

At the conclusion of 'the war to end war', the victors set about redesigning the world map at the Paris Peace Conference. For China, Versailles presented an opportunity to regain territory lost to Japan. Yet, the country was to be severely disappointed. This study explores China's betrayal by the West, the charismatic advocates it sent to the conference and the hugely significant May Fourth Movement that resulted from the treaty.show more
