This collection makes available all British Foreign Office files dealing with China, Hong Kong and Taiwan between 1919 and 1980. These files are particularly important because Britain was one of the first countries to recognize Communist China.
Due to the unique nature of the relationship between Britain and China, these formerly restricted British government documents, consisting of diplomatic despatches, letters, maps, reports of court cases, biographies of leading personalities, summaries of events and diverse other materials, provide unprecedented levels of detail into Chinese history.
