The China History Podcast

With the centenary of the Paris Peace Conference now upon us this month, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to commemorate the event by introducing the life of Wellington Koo.  In this first of a two-part series we will look at the historical events that shaped his early life and career.  In this Part 1 episode we will look at the backstory and setup to the Conference.  Then in Part 2 we will look at the dramatic events that went on between January and April 1919 as well as the latter half of Wellington Koo's life.

In this final episode of the series Laszlo introduces the Shanghai Ghetto, the final years of WWII and the aftermath.  Please check the show notes at the web site for all kinds of books and videos from this period.  Thanks to everyone who made it through all six episodes.
