The Nineteenth Century, Vol. 48 : A Monthly Review; July-December, 1900 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Nineteenth Century, Vol. 48: A Monthly Review; July-December, 1900 Weariness, if not despair, must be the dominant feeling of the writer upon the Far East who takes up his pen once more, at this moment of latest and greatest crisis, to discuss British policy in relation to the Chinese Empire. A dozen, perhaps a score, of writers in this country know the Far East well, they have clearly foreseen what has been coming, they have persistently issued advice and warnings. As each fresh rebuff or crisis has confirmed their prophecies they have redoubled their appeals for something in the shape of a definite, consistent, and supported policy. For all the effect they have had upon the Foreign Office they would have been more usefully employed in whitewashing its cellars.
