Read full description of the books:



Foreign gunboats forced China, Japan and Korea to open to the outside world in the mid-19th century. The treaties signed included rules forbidding local courts from trying foreigners; or, "extraterritoriality." Britain and the United States established consular courts in all three countries and, as trade grew, the British Supreme Court for China and Japan and the United States Court for China. These courts for many decades—over 100 years in China—dispensed British and American justice in the Far East. Extraterritoriality had a huge impact, which continues to this day, on how China and Japan view the world. This book tells its history through the fascinating cast of characters both on and before the bench and the many challenging issues the courts faced including war, riots, rebellion, corruption, murder, infidelity, and, even, a failed hanging. Doug Clark, a practicing lawyer who has lived in China, Japan and Korea for over 25 years, has trawled through dusty archives around the world to bring back to life this long-forgotten exotic world.

Read information about the author

Ebook Gunboat Justice: British and American Law Courts in China and Japan (1842–1943), Volume 1: White Man, White Law, White Gun read Online! Douglas Clark has two intellectual passions: East Asian history and law. He practises as a lawyer by day and spends the rest of the time his family permits travelling in and reading and writing about Asia.

His most recent work, Gunboat Justice, allowed him to bring together all the things he loved the most by writing about the fascinating British and American law courts that operated in China and Japan for 100 years. He travelled all over China, Japan and the rest of the world collecting information and tidbits. He dug into old case files and transcripts to bring out what really happened in court cases and he met and spoke to many relatives for former judges and lawyers. The story is much more than a legal history, but also shows how Japan and China reacted to their forced openings by America and Britain - Japan rising to be a great economic and military power; China collapsing into weakness and civil war. This history impacts to this day how both countries see and interact with the world today.

His early book, Patent Litigation in China is based on his many years of experience litigating patents in China and around the world.

Doug speaks Japanese and Mandarin Chinese as well as a smattering of Korean, having studied in Kobe, Shanghai and Seoul in his high school and university days.
