America as Backdrop in Hu Shi and Chiang Kai-shek’s Constitutional Game

2018年11月28日,星期三,晚6:30 时 







* 讲座内容仅代表演讲者本人的观点和研究。

The presentation will be conducted in Chinese.

After going to Taiwan in 1949, Chiang Kai-shek continued to seek support from the United States.  Nonetheless, he was unwilling to abandon his own autocratic power in accordance with constitutional provisions nor take the initiative to integrate into the global system established by the United States after World War II. With this context as background, in his later years, Hu Shi, who hoped to build Taiwan into an American-style "Free China", launched a series of constitutional games with Chiang Kai-shek to limit his power according to the laws.

This lecture will include three primary aspects: 1. the post-World War II global system; 2. Chiang Kai-shek's complex feelings of love and hate for the United States; 3. America as backdrop in Hu Shi and Chiang Kai-shek’s constitutional game.
