This work offers a detailed study of Kwangsi, the model province of Nationalist China, as it prepared for war with Japan in the 1930s. The author examines the theoretical and pragmatic origins of the Kwangsi Clique's ideology and describes the action taken by its citizen army against Japanese in the second Sino-Japanese War, incorporating an account of the reform programme instituted in Kwangsi during the preceding years.
