Interwar period efforts to extend US radio into China floundered within the face of fallacious US guidelines and methods. located on the intersection of media stories, know-how experiences, and US overseas kinfolk, this research frames the ill-fated radio tasks as symptomatic of an more and more stricken US-East Asian courting sooner than the Pacific battle.

Example text

Takuma wrote, “that the State Department is being gradually disposed through Mr. A. indd 35 2/18/2011 6:28:24 PM 36 American Radio in China Indeed, the new Minister in Beijing, John MacMurray, had already contemplated disengaging American support from Federal. For MacMurray, it was a reversal. Prior to arriving in China, MacMurray supported his predecessor Jacob Schurman’s backing of Federal, including Schurman’s staunch opposition to giving a Chinese official decision-making authority over the construction of the stations.

Consequently, Federal and its government supporters alienated enough of influential Chinese and Japanese opinion to doom its once promising project. ” During the autumn and winter of 1921–22, the “Great Powers,” including the United States and Japan, met in the US capitol to negotiate disarmament in Asia, economic opportunity in China, and the restoration of Chinese sovereignty.

At the same time, RCA and ITT used the internal rivalries of the Chinese state and its external struggles with Japan to try and expand their respective shares of the global telecommunications market. The Japanese, meanwhile, used internationally respected RCA’s willingness to do business in Manchuria to try and secure some degree of international legitimacy for Japan’s widely condemned takeover of that Chinese territory.
