A comparative analysis of their communities in Harbin, 1898-1930
Joshua A. Fogel

thousands of Japanese expatriates (and far more Koreans, whose country had been annexed by Japan in 1910) living throughout the cities of North East Asia and along the Trans-Siberian Railway. When the decision was reached for the Japanese expeditionary force to withdraw in 1922, many local Japanese residents vociferously protested in the local press against such a move, fearing Russian reprisals because of the long intimacy of the Japanese military with the Whites and the Japanese support for such petty White Russian dictators as

her fellow Caribbeans, perhaps even that is something that is more common in the West Indies rather than is customarily acknowledged. Bill Schwarz raises in his introduction the question of what is specific to the West Indian expatriate situation, asking if, as well as similarities, there are differences between West Indian and other colonial immigrants. Perhaps one difference lies here. Almost

expatriate managers, threatening the efficiency of international shipping operations. Although inflationary conditions had greatly increased the sterling salaries of Europeans by the early 1950s, Blue Funnel executives declared that, ‘If. . . we have to rely on Asian representatives, the whole character of our business will change and a large part of our Goodwill will be destroyed.’ 27 How did these

Deviant psychology in Kenya Colony
Will Jackson

concerned with Europeans’ mental health, the point is clear: particular and profound psychological tendencies were liable to develop if hardships were not offset. In the first instance, it was material privation that was liable to test the ‘mettle’ of expatriate Europeans. Michael Blundell, later to become a prominent settler politician, described typical living conditions when he arrived in the Kipkarren

the way he falls in with some engaging ruffians, and on the fictional island of Takana he encounters one of those quirky collections of expatriate Europeans which are the mainstay of Maugham’s Eastern stories. The infrequency of inter-island transport makes Dr Saunders a temporary captive, and this gives him the opportunity to observe a modest romantic tragedy which ends in murder. Saunders ponders it

The evolution of a tradition

recognized the problems. As one US historian has written, ‘Expatriation and repatriation represent nothing new in the history of [the United States]; it is new only to those who are unfamiliar with its history.’ 47 The same can be said of Europe’s emigration history: there is nothing new in today’s stories. To listen to the foreigners who today wash cars, serve food and work in factories, brings echoes of another time, when an earlier revolution in transport also led to major shifts in emigration. The goals remained

keep a distance from the rivers, even if this was not always easy to implement, because they were often the only axis of communication. Rules were drawn up for the construction of residential quarters for the expatriate population, so that they should be better ventilated and protected from the causes of disease. 7 However, these steps were not sufficient to halt the epidemics, and more stringent measures

attitudes toward people on whom overseas flying depended in some measure. He admired and was grateful to expatriates. Among these were the District Commissioners at Berber and Mongalla, the Kenyan Governor at Entebbe and the British Consul at Libreville.

occupations which were not covered by the limited safety net of national insurance and in part on the collapse of Lord Leverhulme’s schemes. On the other hand it remarked on the emigrants’ cheerful demeanour and claimed that ‘expatriation of the surplus population’ was the only practicable solution to demographic pressure in islands afflicted by a ‘chronic inadequacy of natural resources’. 19 Not surprisingly, given its constituency, it was more emphatic about the ‘highly useful avocation in life’ offered to demoralized
