"In 1908, a very public campaign against opium was in full swing throughout China, and in Fujian province, the image of renowned native son Lin Zexu, China's legendary anti-opium crusader, loomed literally and figuratively over this surprisingly successful suppression effort. Commissioner Lin became a potent symbol of nascent Chinese nationalism, the vitality of elite activism, and the complex links between provincial, national, and international interests in the realm of opium reform." "The remarkable, albeit temporary, success of the anti-opium campaign between 1906 and 1920 is as yet largely unexplained. How these results were achieved, how that progress was squandered, and why China's opium problem proved so tenacious are the questions that inspired this volume. The attack on this social problem was led by China's central and provincial authorities, aided by reformist elites, and seemingly supported by most Chinese. The anti-opium movement relied on the control and oversight provided by a multilayered state bureaucracy, the activism and support of unofficial elite-led reform groups, the broad nationalistic and humanitarian appeal of the campaign, and the cooperation of the British government. The extent to which the Chinese state was able to control the pace and direction of the anti-opium campaign and the evolving nature of the political space in which elite reformers publicized and enforced that campaign art the guiding themes of this analysis."--Jacket
