Min Guo Shi Qi Bao Ye Shi Liao Shang Hai Pian 民国时期报业史料 上海篇2021Kao, Yu-ya 高郁雅

The history of modern Shanghai newspapers can be roughly divided into four periods. The first period (1850 to 1895) witnessed their birth and initial development as Shanghai as a city began to take shape, marking the preliminary development phase of Shanghai newspapers. The second period (1895 to 1915) saw a breakthrough in development, with the support of democratic political movements and the protection of foreign concessions. This period solidified the development pattern of Shanghai newspapers, which became a necessity in the daily lives of the citizens. The third period (1915 to 1937) was characterized by comprehensive and stable development. The fourth period (1937 to 1949) experienced contraction and stagnation due to two significant wars: the outbreak of the Anti-Japanese War and the Chinese Civil War. During this time, freedom of speech was restricted, exacerbated by issues like inflation, imposing immense operational pressure on the newspaper industry. By 1949, with the change in the Chinese political landscape, commercial newspapers were placed under strict military control by the new regime, leading to an unprecedented depression in the newspaper industry.

This book compiles diverse historical materials, including archives from the Shanghai Municipal Archives, recollections of journalists, and articles from newspapers and magazines. It is divided into three main themes:

  1. Newspaper Industry Overview, encompassing the basic characteristics of Shanghai's newspaper industry, the history of major newspapers in early 20th century Shanghai, and the functioning of newspaper industry associations.

  2. Newspaper Staff, providing insights into various types of staff in newspapers, such as educational qualifications, working hours, efficiency, and salaries required by printing workers. The book also includes contracts for proofreaders at that time, shedding light on the requirements for proofreading work. Information about the treatment of newspaper staff can be referenced from a comparison table of employee benefits between Xinwen Bao and Shen Bao, detailing the number of employees in each department, work standards, and remuneration methods.

  3. News Editing and Reporting, covering information collection in newspapers, and regulations related to editing news. It provides a detailed introduction to the production process of newspapers, including gathering news, editing, printing, and distribution, all meticulously documented.

In reality, during the period of losing the mainland, the KMT's propaganda played a crucial role. Despite the KMT gradually finding itself in a disadvantaged position in terms of military, politics, economy, and diplomacy after the war, the dissemination of these defeats would not have been so rapid without the CCP's influential propaganda efforts. Faced with the formidable propaganda offensive by the CCP, the KMT's party-controlled news system was unable to mount a strong counterattack. In fact, excessive news control on the KMT's part became a source of the turn towards privately-owned newspapers. What problems did the KMT's propaganda face at that time? How does the failure in propaganda relate to the shift in political power between the KMT and the CCP? These critical questions have not been addressed in the academic community in the past. This article attempts to break new ground by examining the transformation of China's post-war political situation from the perspective of propaganda.

Shanghai Wing On Department Store was the largest and fairly capable 'Universal' department store in old China, enjoying a certain reputation both domestically and internationally. It was initiated by Australian Chinese immigrants Guo Le and Guo Quan, among others. Established in 1918 and continuing until the liberation, it underwent a process of public-private partnership. Over nearly forty years of history, it held a significant position and influence in China's national capitalist commercial economy. Throughout its long-standing commercial activities, Wing On Department Store accumulated considerable experience in capitalist business management. Leveraging this experience, it managed to survive and achieve some development amidst the oppression from imperialism and bureaucratic capital, both domestically and internationally. However, under the historical conditions of old China, it eventually declined from its peak and faced extremely challenging circumstances, ultimately succumbing to the imminent fate of bankruptcy. We believe that a detailed analysis of this typical commercial enterprise is beneficial for further studying China's national capitalist economy and the national bourgeoisie.

Wu Si Yun Dong Zai Shang Hai Shi Liao Xuan Ji 五四运动在上海史料选辑1960Shang Hai She Hui Ke Xue Yuan Li Shi Yan Jiu Suo 上海社会科学院历史研究所

To commemorate the 60th anniversary of the great May Fourth Movement, the Shanghai People's Publishing House recently reissued the 'Compilation of Historical Materials on the May Fourth Movement in Shanghai,' edited by the History Research Institute of the Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences (hereafter referred to as the 'Compilation'). When news of the May Fourth Movement breaking out in Beijing reached Shanghai, the people of Shanghai immediately responded fervently. The students of Shanghai were the first to launch patriotic activities in support of the Beijing students. Subsequently, various sectors and political groups in Shanghai issued appeals, unanimously supporting the patriotic actions of Beijing students and demanding the rejection of the 'Treaty of Versailles,' and the stern punishment of traitors like Cao, Lu, and Zhang. The 'Compilation' extensively portrays and introduces the National Assembly convened by the people of Shanghai, demonstrations, the establishment of the 'Shanghai Student Union' leading the student movement, and the promotion of boycotting Japanese goods by the 'Advocacy of Domestic Goods Association' and 'Open-Air Propaganda Team,' among other actions, in practical support and endorsement of the patriotic actions of Beijing students. These historical materials provide a vivid depiction of the intense mass struggle during that period. It's worth noting that the 'Compilation' also collected materials on the struggle of the people of Shanghai against the comprador bourgeoisie represented by Yu Qiaqing and Zhu Baosan. The comprador bourgeoisie in China were imperialist lackeys, the arch-enemies of the Chinese people. Therefore, at the crucial historical moment of May Fourth, they undoubtedly emerged to sabotage the righteous patriotic struggle of the Chinese people and serve their imperialist masters. The 'Compilation' effectively exposes the vile actions and deeds perpetrated by the comprador bourgeoisie, led by Yu Qiaqing, during the 'Three Abstentions' movement and struggle in Shanghai. After the June Third incident, the workers, students, and business community of Shanghai bravely conducted the 'Three Abstentions' movement, which included strikes, class boycotts, and market closures. Particularly, the political general strike by the working class in Shanghai played a decisive role in achieving the movement's victory. The 'Compilation' contains numerous materials reflecting this aspect. For instance, in addition to going on strike, workers from the Xinji Machine Factory in Shanghai built a wooden arch near the factory entrance inscribed with the words 'Do Not Forget the National Humiliation' to motivate people to persist in the 'Three Abstentions' struggle. The struggle of shop employees was also resolute during this time. A shop employee on Henan Road once wrote in his own blood and posted a sign on the store's door with twelve big characters: 'As long as the students are detained, this store will remain closed.' Many shops had slogans posted outside: 'The nation is on the verge of destruction, no interest in business,' 'Stop business to save detained students,' and similar slogans, indicating the determination to carry the 'Three Abstentions' struggle to the end. The materials collected in the 'Compilation' span from the outbreak of the May Fourth Movement to the establishment of the Communist groups in Shanghai during that period. They have been carefully categorized based on their different natures. Comrade Mao Zedong said: 'The May Fourth Movement occurred under the call of the revolutionary movement of the world at that time, under the call of the Russian Revolution, and under the call of Lenin.' Therefore, the 'Compilation' first utilizes important writings by communist intellectuals, introducing the October Socialist Revolution in Russia and Marxist publications. Additionally, a significant portion of the historical materials in the 'Compilation' is selected from bourgeois newspapers published in Shanghai at that time. However, bourgeois newspaper reports inevitably carry their class biases, making them flawed as historical materials. Furthermore, the 'Compilation' also includes selected opposing materials from relevant archives of the country, annual reports of the Shanghai Public Works Department, and foreign-language newspapers in Shanghai. Through these historical materials, we can gain an understanding of the historical panorama of that time from various perspectives—positive, lateral, and opposing. The 'Compilation' features over forty finely printed historical photographs at the beginning of the book. These include photographs taken at that time and physical images, featuring comrades Li Dazhao, Mao Zedong, Zhou Sili during the May Fourth period, as well as copperplate photographs of 'New Youth,' 'Weekly Review,' 'Xiangjiang Review,' and historical images of the heroic struggle of the Shanghai people during the May Fourth period. They are valuable materials for studying the May Fourth Movement.


Qing Mo Min Chu De Jin Yan Yun Dong He Wan Guo Jin Yan Hui 清末民初的禁烟运动和万国禁烟会1996Shanghai Municipal Archives 上海市档案馆

Drug abuse is a hot issue that has garnered widespread attention in today's international society. The United Nations has a dedicated anti-drug agency responsible for coordinating global anti-drug efforts, and most countries have specialized anti-drug agencies. Due to the serious harm of drug proliferation to individuals, families, societies, and nations, strict controls and severe punishment for drug-related crimes are implemented by governments of various countries. The Opium Wars from 1840 to 1842 led China into a semi-colonial and semi-feudal state. At that time, opium abuse was rampant, causing many families to be impoverished and torn apart. Pressured by international public opinion and the rising anti-smoking sentiment domestically, the Qing government issued a series of anti-smoking decrees and launched anti-smoking campaigns nationwide, with the most representative being Lin Zexu's "Opium Destruction in Humen." However, due to political corruption, the declining national strength, and the people's suffering during the Qing Dynasty, the harm of opium remained unresolved despite the efforts to ban it. It was only after the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949, under the leadership of the Chinese Communist Party, that the Chinese people swiftly eradicated opium within a few years, creating a miracle in the history of global drug prohibition. However, in the late 1970s, international drug trafficking groups, primarily from the "Golden Triangle" region, began to infiltrate drugs into China's southwestern border, rekindling drug-related crimes. This raised high concerns within the Chinese government, and the Central Committee and the State Council took a series of comprehensive and effective measures. Significant achievements were made in drug control, and China's reputation in the international drug control arena continued to rise.

This book, compiled and published by the Shanghai Anti-Drug Working Group Office and the Shanghai Archives, reflects a period of anti-smoking history in China from before the Opium Wars to 1926. It is rich in content and based on solid historical evidence. It holds positive value for the study of modern Chinese history, especially the history of drug prohibition both internationally and domestically. Moreover, the book provides vivid historical material for our anti-drug propaganda efforts. We believe it will be welcomed by a wide range of readers.

As early as March 1962, the History Institute of the Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences, following the instructions of the Shanghai Municipal Committee of the Chinese Communist Party, began to organize efforts to compile historical materials on the May Thirtieth Movement. Within three years, a large amount of data was accumulated. Due to the influence of the Cultural Revolution, this work was halted for more than a decade and only resumed in 1978, gradually compiling and publishing the results. 'Historical Materials of the May Thirtieth Movement' is divided into three volumes, published by Shanghai People's Publishing House in November 1981, August 1986, and December 2005, with a total word count of 2.12 million.

This compilation of archival historical materials is a collection from the Shanghai Commodity Exchange and the Shanghai Stock Exchange, mainly selected from the archival collections of the Shanghai Municipal Archives and other relevant collections. The Shanghai Commodity Exchange was initiated in early 1917 and officially established in 1920, making it the earliest comprehensive exchange established in China. The selected archives in this compilation reflect the establishment and relevant operational activities of the exchange, providing primary source materials for studying the securities and commodity trading activities at that time. The mention of Zhang Jingjiang and Chiang Kai-shek's involvement in brokering securities and commodities trading at the exchange in the early 1920s is an issue of significant interest in historical studies. The China Second Historical Archives generously released archives and other historical materials related to this aspect, greatly enhancing the content of this book, and we express our gratitude for this. The Shanghai Stock Exchange was established by the Nationalist government after the victory of the Anti-Japanese War with the aim of promoting enterprise investment, facilitating economic rehabilitation, establishing a sound securities market, and supporting industrial and commercial enterprises. It commenced operations in September 1946, overseeing securities trading throughout the city and being the 'sole securities trading market' in China at that time, occupying a significant position in the socio-economic life of the period. In addition, we have selected various materials from relevant archives and old newspapers and periodicals as appendices. These are important historical materials for a comprehensive understanding and research of the securities industry in old Shanghai and even old China. We believe they offer valuable insights for the recently recovering securities market today.

Shang Hai Fu Nv Zhi 上海妇女志2000Shang Hai Fu Nv Zhi Bian Zuan Wei Yuan Hui 《上海妇女志》编纂委员会

Shanghai is the cradle of the Chinese working class and the largest economic center in China. It is also a place where female workers and educated women are relatively concentrated. For a long time, Shanghai women have been striving for self-improvement and unity. In the New Democratic Revolution and the Socialist Revolution and construction, they played the role of the 'half of the sky.' Since the reform and opening up, Shanghai women have displayed a new demeanor of self-respect, self-improvement, and active progress. They have embraced an open mindset towards the whole country and the world, a dedication to work, and a spirit of contributing to society. They have been active in various fields of political, economic, and social life, producing a group of contemporary female heroes embodying the unique charm of Shanghai women, earning praise and admiration from society.

The 'Shanghai Women's Chronicles' comprehensively and systematically reflect the history and current situation of Shanghai women. It not only enriches the cultural treasury of local chronicles, helping us understand the situation of Shanghai women, but also serves as a positive influence for us to understand Marxist views on women, implement the basic state policy of gender equality, and promote the development and progress of Shanghai women.

The progress of women is a symbol of social progress. Respecting and protecting women is the moral trend that a civilized society should follow. We hope that the whole society will care about women's work, effectively safeguard the equal status and rights of women in national politics, economics, and social life, and create better conditions for their participation in social production and various activities. Women's federations and women's organizations at all levels should listen to the voices of women, do their best to alleviate their worries, educate and unite women from all walks of life, promote the spirit of 'self-respect, self-confidence, self-reliance, and self-strengthening,' actively engage in reform and opening up and modernization, fully utilize their intelligence and wisdom, and further play the role of the 'half of the sky.

上海是中国工人阶级的摇篮和中国最大的经济中心城市,也是女职工和知识妇女较为集中的地方。长期以来,上海妇女自强不息,团结奋斗,在新民主主义革命和社会主义革命与建设中,都发挥了“半边天”的作用。改革开放以来,上海妇女更以自尊自强、积极进取的崭新风貌,面向全国、走向世界的开放意识,爱岗敬业、报效社会的奉献精神,活跃在政治、经济、社会生活的各个领域,涌现了一批具有时代精神、体现上海妇女独特风采的巾帼英雄,受到了社会的好评和称颂。 《上海妇女志》全面系统地反映了上海妇女的历史和现状,不仅丰富了地方志的文化宝库,有助于我们了解上海妇女的情况,而且对我们以史为鉴,正确认识马克思主义的妇女观,进一步贯彻男女平等的基本国策,推动上海妇女的发展和进步,将起到积极的作用。 妇女的进步是社会进步的标志。尊重妇女、保护妇女是文明社会应有的道德风尚。希望全社会都来关心妇女工作,切实维护妇女在国家政治、经济和社会生活中的平等地位和各项权益,为她们参加社会生产和各项社会活动创造更好的条件。各级妇联和妇女组织更要倾听妇女的呼声,尽力为她们排忧解难,教育和团结各界妇女,努力发扬“自尊、自信、自立、自强”精神,积极投身改革开放和现代化建设,充分施展聪明才智,进一步发挥“半边天”作用。

In 1905, brothers Jian Zhaonan and Jian Yujie, both from Nanhai, Guangdong, founded a company in Hong Kong called "Nanyang Brothers Tobacco Company." Initially, they produced "White Crane" brand cigarettes, which gained popularity. However, the company soon faced setbacks and closed down due to competition from British and American tobacco companies. In 1909, they resumed operations and renamed the company "Guangdong Nanyang Brothers Tobacco Company," producing "Double Happiness" cigarettes. In 1916, they established a factory in Shanghai.

In 1918, the company was restructured as Nanyang Brothers Tobacco Corporation Limited, with its headquarters relocated to Shanghai. In 1919, they issued shares to the public, increasing their capital to 15 million Hong Kong dollars, with more than half of the shares owned by the Jian brothers. They set up branch factories in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Hankou, and other places, as well as tin foil factories, printing factories, canning factories, and tobacco curing factories in tobacco-producing areas. Their sales network expanded nationwide and throughout Southeast Asia. During the peak period of Nanyang Brothers, in 1923, Jian Zhaonan, aged 53, suddenly passed away, marking a turning point in the company's fortunes. By 1927, the actual capital reached nearly 20 million yuan. However, after 1927, under the dual pressure of foreign capital and bureaucratic capital, the company's business declined, experiencing consecutive losses from 1928 to 1930, and the capital dwindled to 11.25 million yuan. The company incurred a loss of 2.25 million yuan in 1928 and 3.2 million yuan in 1929. After the severe losses in the late 1920s, from 1930 to 1936, Nanyang's average annual profit was only 700,000 yuan, a fraction of the earlier years' annual profit of 4 million yuan. In 1936, the Jian family actively sought help from Song Ziwen, offering him 200,000 shares at a low price and giving him control over the 200,000 shares they held. In April 1937, Song Ziwen took over Nanyang Brothers Tobacco Company, assuming the position of Chairman. His brother, Song Ziliang, and Shanghai celebrity Du Yuesheng became directors of the company, while Jian Yujie was demoted to the fourth largest shareholder and took on the roles of director and design committee member, effectively assuming a passive position. For the next 12 years, the company was controlled by a bureaucratic group. At the time, Song Ziwen held both public and private positions and utilized funds from the Guangdong Bank, leading the book "Historical Materials of Nanyang Brothers Tobacco Company" published in September 1958 to consider it as "bureaucratic capitalism's plunder and control of national industry." Some argue that this is evidence of Song's corruption. After Song Ziwen took over, Nanyang Brothers managed to survive temporarily. After the July 7th Incident, Nanyang Brothers' factories in Shanghai were bombed by the Japanese, and almost the entire mainland market was lost.

After the establishment of the People's Republic of China, military control was implemented in the Shanghai, Chongqing, Hankou, and Guangzhou factories, confiscating bureaucratic capital and establishing temporary management committees. In February 1951, through a public-private joint venture agreement, Nanyang Brothers Tobacco Company was renamed Public-Private Joint Venture Nanyang Brothers Tobacco Company, with Jian Yujie serving as Vice Chairman and Jian Zhaonan's son, Jian Rilin, appointed as General Manager. By 1957, the company's profits had increased more than tenfold. The Shanghai, Hankou, Guangzhou, and Chongqing factories were successively transformed into separate accounting units and incorporated into the national plan. The Hong Kong factory retained the name Nanyang Brothers Tobacco Corporation Limited and continued to operate. In 1960, the Nanyang board of directors decided to entrust the Hong Kong factory to the General Audit Office of China Bank in Hong Kong. In 1965, the Hong Kong factory relocated from Wan Chai to San Po Kong, and in 1985, it moved again to Matau Kok.

In 1980, the ownership of "Nanyang" officially belonged to the Shanghai Municipal Government. In 1981, the Shanghai Municipal Government registered a wholly-owned subsidiary company called "Shanghai Industrial Company Limited" (the predecessor of "Shanghai Industrial Group") in Hong Kong, and "Nanyang" became a member company under "Shanghai Industrial." In 1987, it was officially transferred to Shanghai Industrial.

On August 13, 1937, the Battle of Shanghai erupted, marking the beginning of the Chinese resistance against Japanese aggression. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) led the people of Shanghai in their anti-Japanese and national salvation movement, actively supporting the Nationalist Party's (Kuomintang) war efforts. After the fall of Shanghai, the CCP maintained and expanded its presence in Shanghai, engaging in a wide range of activities aimed at building a united front against the Japanese occupation. They rallied individuals from all walks of life to sustain a prolonged resistance against the Japanese while also dispatching forces to the regions near Shanghai, such as Jiangnan and Jiangbei, to carry out armed struggles in the enemy-occupied territories.

In the rural areas surrounding Shanghai, which were tightly controlled by Japanese puppet authorities, the CCP initiated and organized guerrilla warfare against the Japanese starting in 1938. They gradually established several guerrilla bases over the course of eight years, resembling steel daggers driven into the heart of the enemy. These guerrilla forces, in collaboration with the New Fourth Army's eastward expeditionary units, played a vital role in commanding and striking against Japanese puppet forces, supporting resistance bases in the hinterlands of central China and eastern Zhejiang, and coordinating with the urban population's anti-Japanese and national salvation movement. The Shanghai suburban guerrilla warfare was an integral aspect of the broader anti-Japanese struggle in Shanghai and a critical component of the extensive battlefield in the eastern region of China.

This book compiles the history of the CCP-led resistance in Shanghai's suburbs, recounting the arduous and remarkable eight-year struggle, emphasizing the hard-fought victories that provide profound inspiration. The guerrilla warfare in Shanghai's suburbs unfolded under extremely challenging and complex circumstances. The CCP-led anti-Japanese guerrilla forces upheld the banner of national liberation, implemented comprehensive political strategies for the war effort, and actively engaged and armed the masses. They steadfastly resisted Japanese aggression and opposed surrender, representing the strong patriotic desire of the suburban population to avoid becoming slaves of a foreign invader. Thus, the guerrilla forces, distinct from local armed factions, possessed the broadest popular support. The collaboration between the armed forces and the people was the key to success in the eight-year-long resistance, relying on the valiant guerrilla fighters and the heroic people who shielded and supported the guerrilla warfare.

The CCP-led guerrilla forces diligently followed the policy of "develop progressive forces, win over middle-of-the-road forces, isolate stubborn reactionary forces." They extensively worked on building a united front against the Japanese occupation, rallying and winning over social elites and enlightened gentry, reforming local forces affiliated with various factions of the Nationalist Party, and converting patriotic soldiers from the puppet regime. They established democratic anti-Japanese governments, achieving considerable success. Depending on the local conditions and the balance of power between friend and foe, the guerrilla forces adopted diverse and flexible strategies, such as utilizing legal means and conducting open struggles or engaging in covert operations deep within enemy territory. All of these strategies aimed at gaining allies, isolating enemies, and strengthening their own position. The CCP's united front work was an essential weapon that allowed the suburban guerrilla warfare to endure, grow, and eventually triumph in the face of the strict control and complexity of the enemy-occupied territories.

The CCP-led suburban guerrilla warfare underwent a challenging and convoluted process of development, contraction, and subsequent expansion leading to victory. In the early stages of the resistance, the CCP tirelessly established and developed secret party organizations in the suburban areas, forming a strong leadership core that laid the organizational foundation for creating anti-Japanese armed forces and launching mass movements. During the long and difficult phase of anti“Combing-Out” struggles, the CCP made the correct decision to preserve their core strength and relocate their main forces. Local party organizations at all levels maintained prolonged concealment in their original locations, rallied the masses, accumulated strength, and conducted covert operations. They not only steadfastly preserved and expanded the anti-Japanese front in the suburbs but also provided vital support to the struggles in the anti-Japanese bases in southern Jiangsu, central Jiangsu, northern Jiangsu, and eastern Zhejiang. The CCP's correct leadership was the fundamental guarantee of victory in the struggle.

The success of the suburban anti-Japanese guerrilla warfare in Shanghai was also a result of the close cooperation and mutual support between urban and rural areas. From the beginning of the suburban armed resistance, the underground CCP in Shanghai adhered to the central directives and sent key party members and material support to aid the suburban guerrilla warfare. The valiant struggle of the suburban population and their continuous victories greatly boosted the confidence of the urban population, reaffirming the belief in ultimate victory. The cooperation and mutual support between urban and rural areas, the steadfast commitment to the struggle, were indispensable conditions for achieving the final victory of the resistance.

The compilation and publication of this book are meaningful and necessary. Due to the war conditions of the past, historical records of the Shanghai suburban anti-Japanese guerrilla warfare have not been fully preserved, and without timely collection and organization, numerous remarkable achievements and valuable historical experiences that are still relevant today might be lost. Comrades Zhang Yiyu, Weng Sanxin, and Li Fei, in a three-year effort, conducted interviews with nearly a hundred veteran comrades, examined relevant archives and materials, and collaborated with party history collectors from various counties in the Shanghai suburbs and sister provinces and counties. They collected a vast amount of information, which was then sorted, verified, and researched to compile this comprehensive and reliable historical record. This undoubtedly constitutes a valuable contribution to accurately and thoroughly document party history and provides a systematic historical reference for the veterans who participated in the struggle and researchers of party history.

Finally, as this book is being released, we respectfully commemorate the martyrs who valiantly sacrificed their lives in the fight against Japanese aggression. We extend our profound respect to the veteran comrades and soldiers who led and participated in the suburban anti-Japanese guerrilla warfare. Their heroic achievements will forever be recorded in the annals of the people's revolutionary struggle.

一九三七年八月十三日,上海抗战爆发。中国共产党领导了上海人民的抗日救亡运动,积极支援国民党军队的抗战。上海沦陷后,中国共产党一面保持和发展着上海群众运动的阵地,广泛开展抗日民族统一战线工作,团结各阶层人士进行持久的抗日斗争,另一面输送力量到上海附近的江南、江北一带开展敌后武装斗争。 在日伪反动统治严密控制的上海郊县农村,中共从一九三八年起就积极发动和组织抗日游击战争,并逐步建立起若干游击根据地,经过历时八年的艰苦斗争,犹如一把把钢刀插在敌人的心脏里。郊县的抗日武装与新四军东进部队相结合,在率制和打击日伪力量,支援华中、浙东敌后抗日根据地和配合上海城市人民抗日救亡运动等方面,均起到了重要的作用。上海郊县抗日游击战争是上海人民抗日斗争的重要方面,也是华东广大敌后战场的重要组成部分。 1 .本书汇集了党领导的上海郊县抗日武装斗争始末,回顾八年艰苦卓绝的战斗历程,深感胜利来之不易,给人以深刻启迪。 上海郊县的抗日武装斗争是在极端困难和复杂的环境中进行的。党领导的抗日游击队高举民族解放战争的旗帜,实行全面抗战的政治主张,广泛发动群众、武装群众,坚持抗日,反对投降,代表着郊县广大群众不愿做亡国奴的强烈爱国愿望。因此,我们的游击队,有别于任何派系组织的地方武装,拥有最广泛的群众基础。兵民是胜利之本,八年抗战得以坚持,依靠着英勇的游击队指战员,也依靠着掩护和支援游击战争的英雄人民。 中共领导的抗日游击队,认真贯彻“发展进步势力,争取中间势力,孤立顽固势力”的方针,广泛开展抗日民族统一战线工作,团结、争取社会名流、开明士绅,争取改造国民党各派系的地方部队,策反伪军中具有爱国心的官兵,建立三三制抗日民主政权,均取得较大成绩。根据当地当时形势的变化和敌我力量的对比,游击武装在党的领导下,又采取了灵活多样的斗争策略,如利用合法,进行公开的斗争;深入敌营,坚持隐蔽斗争等等。这些都服务于争取同盟者,孤立敌人,壮大自己。党的统战工作是郊县抗日武装在敌伪势力严密控制、错综复杂的敌占区能够长期生存、发展、壮大,最终克敌制胜的重要法宝。 中共领导的郊县抗日武装斗争经历了发展、收缩、再发展,直至胜利的艰难曲折过程。抗战初期,党就开始坚持不懈地秘密建立和发展郊县各级党组织,形成坚强的领导核心,为创建抗日武装,莲勃开展群众运动莫定了组织基础。在漫长而艰苦的反清乡斗争阶段,党又正确地决定,为保存有生力量,主力部队转移,各级地方党组织坚持原地长期埋伏,团结群众,积蓄力量,开展隐蔽斗争。既出色地坚持和发展了郊区抗日阵地,又支援了苏南、苏中、苏北和浙东抗日根据地的斗争,为迎接抗战胜利作出了可贵的贡献。党的正确领导,是斗争胜利的根本保证。 上海郊县抗日武装斗争的成功,也是城市和农村紧密配合,互相支援的成果。从上海郊县武装斗争一开始,上海地下党就遵循中央指示,输送了党的骨干力量和物资支援郊县武装斗争,郊县人民的英勇斗争和不断取得的胜利,又极大地鼓舞了城市人民抗战必胜的信心。城乡配合,互相支援,坚持斗争,也为抗战取得最终胜利,提供了必不可少的条件。 本书的编纂和出版是一项很有意义和必要的工作。由于过去的战争环境,上海郊县抗日武装斗争的史料,无法完整地保存至今,如不及时搜集、整理,大量可歌可颂的战斗业绩和至今仍值得借鉴的历史经验,就有湮没的可能。张义渔、翁三新、李飞三位同志化了三年时间,走访了近百位老同志,查阅了有关档案和资料,并与市郊各县和兄弟省、县的党史征集工作者协作,收集了大量资料,经整理、查核、研究,汇编成这本较为完整可信的史料书。这无疑为立准、立好党史,做了件有益的工作,也为参加当年斗争的老同志和党史研究工作者,提供较为系统的历史资料。 最后,值此出版本书之际,谨向在这场抗击日本侵略者斗争中英勇牺牲的烈士,致以深切的悼念。向当年领导和参加过郊县抗日游击战争的老同志、老战士致以崇高的敬意。他们的英勇业绩,将永远载入人民革命斗争的史册。

We have collected and selected historical materials related to the Small Swords Society(Xiao Dao Hui) Uprising. Apart from revolutionary literature, the majority of these materials consist of archives, newspapers, private writings, and notes from the reactionary rule of the Qing Dynasty and imperialist forces. These materials have significant historical value, and we have compiled them for researchers' reference. The editing methods we have adopted are as follows:

  1. The collected materials, both in Chinese and foreign languages, are complex in content and form. To preserve the original documents, we generally refrain from cutting or fragmenting them. The materials are divided into six sections based on their nature. To provide readers with a comprehensive understanding of the history of the Small Swords Society Uprising, we have prepared two introductory pieces: "Overview of the Small Swords Society Uprising" and "Timeline of Major Events in the Small Swords Society Uprising." These sections are accompanied by revolutionary artifacts, photographs, and maps, placed at the beginning of the compilation.

  2. The materials in this compilation are divided into six sections: the first section contains literature on the Small Swords Society, the second section consists of records and reports on the uprising and its battles in Shanghai, the third section comprises archival materials on the Qing Dynasty's feudal ruling class suppressing  the Small Swords Society Uprising, the fourth section includes archives and records of foreign invaders' interference in the Small Swords Society Uprising, the fifth section contains other relevant historical materials on the uprising, and the sixth section comprises materials on the uprisings of the people in the counties near Shanghai, along with related materials documenting the response from Ningbo, Zhejiang.

  3. Before each section, the editors have provided commentary to explain the content, nature, and historical value of the included materials, allowing readers to gain a clear understanding of each section.

  4. Under each material's title, the editors have provided an evaluation to help readers understand the source, version, authors' perspectives, the historical value of the work, and any inaccuracies it may contain.

  5. The titles of the materials are generally preserved without modification. Only a few highly reactionary titles that defame the revolution and are intolerable have been modified, with the original titles still included as annotations after the respective materials.

  6. With regards to the foreign language materials in this compilation, the majority have been translated and selected by us. The translated names of individuals and places strive to match those already published. When using older translations from various books, we have made uniform changes to names of individuals and places while leaving the rest unchanged. A table providing name translations is included at the end. The most challenging to translate are the revolutionary documents. We have referenced the Chinese style of the Small Swords Society's proclamations to restore their original appearance as much as possible. However, due to significant differences between the Chinese literary style and English writing conventions, we can only strive for approximation.

  7. The Chinese materials included in this compilation have undergone collation using different versions. We have selected the better versions and supplemented them using other editions. For example, "The Origins and Development of Westernization" was chosen over "The Qing Veritable Records" due to the former's earlier publication date. Similarly, for revolutionary documents of the Small Swords Society with multiple versions, the best version was chosen as the base text, with other versions used for supplementation and accompanied by explanations.

  8. The materials related to the Shanghai Xidao Club Uprising in the North China Herald amount to approximately 160,000 words. Among them are original revolutionary documents that have been lost, detailed reports on the battles, historical records of imperialist occupation of customs and concessions, as well as special features on the Qing Dynasty's feudal rule compromising and surrendering. Based on the nature of these materials, they have been categorized and included in the respective sections. The discovery of revolutionary documents provides new evidence for studying the political situation of the Small Swords Society and their relationship with the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom. Although the continuous reports on the battles contain the perspective of the aggressors, they are still detailed historical materials of the revolutionary war. Therefore, we have compiled these reports for readers' reference.

  9. The sources and origins of the cultural relics' images included in this compilation are indicated. Among them, the photos of Jiading were taken during our own investigation, and the maps were drawn by us.

  10. We are currently lacking investigative materials on the Small Swords Society Uprising. We have only conducted preliminary investigations in Jiading. We hope comrades from Shanghai, Jiading, Qingpu, Baoshan, Nanhui, Chuansha, and other counties can assist us in order to supplement the investigative materials in the future.

  11. This compilation of historical materials is a thematic collection aimed at organizing the history of the Shanghai people's struggles and supplementing the historical materials of the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom. Due to the limited collection time and insufficient in-depth work, there may inevitably be omissions and errors
