The Origins of the Boxer War

The Origins of the Boxer War

Russia's chief concern was to prevent any major foreign military intervention in
northern China, for that would definitely challenge the established Russian
interests there. By 1900 Russia occupied a unique position in China. It had

This is the first book to provide a panoramic view of the origins of the Boxer War. Comprehensively examining this historical conundrum of the 20th century from a detached perspective, the book is based on ten years of exhaustive research of both unpublished and published materials from all nine countries involved. Analysing the misunderstanding between the Chinese and foreign governments of the day, Lanxin Xiang debunks the traditional view that the anti-foreign Empress Dowager of the Chinese Empire was chiefly responsible for this catastrophic episode which altered the course of 20th century China's relationship with the west.

In 1900 in China a peasant movement known as the Boxers rose up and tried to destroy its Western oppressors. The culminating event of the Boxer Rebellion was the siege of the Western legations in Peking. In isolated Peking, a horde of brightly dressed, acrobatic, anti–Western and anti–Christian Boxers surrounded the fortified diplomatic legation compound, and rumors about the torture and murder of 900 Western diplomats, soldiers, and missionaries swirled throughout the foreign media. Scholars agree that animosity toward Christian missionaries was a major cause of the Boxer Rebellion, but most accounts neglect the missionaries and emphasize instead the diplomats and soldiers who weathered the siege and defeated the Chinese in battle. This book gives equivalent attention to the missionaries, their work, the impact they had on China, and the controversies arising in the aftermath of the Boxer Rebellion. It focuses particularly on one of the most distinguished American missionaries, William Scott Ament, whose brave and resourceful heroism was tarnished by hubris and looting.

In the summer of 1900, bands of peasant youths from the villages of north China streamed into Beijing to besiege the foreign legations, attracting the attention of the entire world. Joseph Esherick reconstructs the early history of the Boxers, challenging the traditional view that they grew from earlier anti-dynastic sects, and stressing instead the impact of social ecology and popular culture.

Before 1940, Nathan Shapow, a young Latvian, had nothing more on his mind than enjoying his teenage years and becoming a champion boxer. But the Nazis’ systematic extermination of the Jews quickly put paid to his dreams. Soon he was to face a different sort of fight, where the prize for victory would be his life. Escaping certain death time and time again, Shapow saw his youth disappear in the terror of the Ghettos and the horror of the camps. Fighting for his very existence for the simple reason of being Jewish, remarkably, he survived, fell in love and forged a new life in what was then British-controlled Palestine. There, he joined an underground military organisation and quickly became involved in the struggle to create a Jewish state. Extraordinary and powerful, The Boxer’s Story is the inspiring true story of one man’s enduring fortitude.

When I first heard about Haymakers for Hope, I was overtaken with two conflicting emotions: excitement and trepidation. The latter, of course, was natural considering the fact that few of us will ever box three two-minute rounds in a ring at The House of Blues in Boston in front of 1,500 screaming fans. The former, however, was aided and abetted by Jimmy McGrail, a friend from Charlestown who competed at the 2012 event and would become my mentor for this challenge. After listening to his stories about training and the amazing group of people associated with Haymakers for Hope, I was hooked. Soon, I learned that two friends-of-friends had fought in previous years and that an acquaintance of mine was also signed up for this year's card. I have done some crazy athletic stunts in the past, but this one had to be the most daring. Whatever bravery I needed to muster, though, paled in comparison to the struggles of several people I know who have battled cancer in the past and are fighting for their lives now. I boxed for them because they have inspired me with courage and candor throughout their treatments and recoveries. Lyn Ackerly, this one was for you! Beyond the personal test of conditioning oneself for a bout, it was the mission of supporting The Jimmy Fund and The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute that made taking a few punches all the more rewarding. I was fortunate to get into the ring with fellow participants Matt Smith, Maria Tedeschi, Judd Smith, Michelle Kalas, and Ned Hare - and to spar with a great boxer like Jesse Rasid - at Quietman Sports Gym under the direction of our trainer, Dan Parks. We did our best to make one another better and collectively raised over $40K to fight cancer. This poetry journal/journey details the emotions of a five-month, irreproducible saga and includes photographs of and commentary from many of the Boston '13 boxers. Best of all, part of the proceeds from sales will benefit Haymakers for Hope. Follow @StandsABoxer on Twitter. George Aaron Cuddy @cuddyboston September 2013

It is said the champions of the ancient Olympic Games received a crown of olive leaves, symbolizing a divine blessing from Nike, the winged goddess of victory. While the mythology of the ancient games has come to exemplify the highest political, religious, community, and individual ideals of the time, the modern Olympic Games, by comparison, are widely known as an international, bi-annual sporting event where champions have the potential to earn not only glory for their country, but lucrative endorsement deals and the perks of worldwide fame. The Olympics and Philosophy examines the Olympic Movement from a variety of theoretical perspectives to uncover the connection between athleticism and philosophy for a deeper appreciation of the Olympic Pillars of Sport, Environment, and Culture. While today's Olympic champions are neither blessed by the gods nor rewarded with wreaths of olive, the original spirit and ancient ideals of the Olympic Movement endure in its modern embodiment. Editors Heather L. Reid and Michael W. Austin have assembled a team of international scholars to explore topics such as the concept of excellence, ethics, doping, gender, and race. Interweaving ancient and modern Olympic traditions, The Olympics and Philosophy considers the philosophical implications of the Games' intersection with historical events and modern controversy in a unique analysis of tradition and the future of the Olympiad.

Medical Aspects of Boxing is a comprehensive text that serves as an excellent general reference for all healthcare providers involved with boxing. The major focus of the book is geared toward the neurological aspects of boxing. An entire section of the volume is devoted to such topics as acute and chronic brain injury, neuroradiology, neuropsychology, electrophysiology, and epidemiology of brain injury. General concepts of boxing, including the role of the ringside physician, differences between amateur and professional boxing, socio-medical aspects of boxing, and non-neurological medical aspects of boxing are also discussed.

During the Soviet period the USSR conducted diplomatic relations with incumbent regimes while simultaneously cultivating and manipulating communist movements in those same countries. The Chinese case offers a particularly interesting example of this dual policy, for when the Chinese Communists came to power in 1949, their discovery of the nature of Moscow's imperial designs on Chinese territory sowed distrust between the two revolutionary powers and paved the way to the Sino-Soviet split.Drawing on newly available documents from archives in China, Taiwan, Russia, and Japan, this study examines secret agreements signed by Moscow and the Peking government in 1924 and confirmed by a Soviet-Japanese convention in 1925. These agreements essentially allowed the Bolsheviks to reclaim most of tsarist Russia's concessions and privileges in China, including not only Imperial properties but also Outer Mongolia, the Chinese Eastern Railway, the Boxer Indemnity, and the right of extraterritoriality. Each of these topics is analyzed in this volume, and translations of the secret protocols themselves are included in a documentary appendix. Additional chapters discuss Sino-Soviet diplomacy and the parallel history of Soviet relations with the Chinese Communist Party as well as the origins and purpose of the United Front policy.

Should scientific congresses take place in connection with Olympic Games, and should science be represented not only in the form of applied science engaged in the care of athletes, but also as an informing, reflecting and critical authority? The Organizing Committee for the Games of the XXth Olympiad answered this question in the affirmative, and the results have justified this decision. The invitation sent out by the Organizing Committee was accepted by numerous eminent scholars and many participants from all over the world; it was their merit that the general topic of the congress could be discussed in manifold ways under various aspects and without prejudice. For this reason, they deserve our gratitude and appreciation. By now, the congress report has been completed. It is part of the total scientific concept which includes the preparatory publication, "The Scientific View of Sport Perspectives, Aspects, Issues", the congress itself and the present report; and, in close connection therewith, the exhibitions, "100 Years of German Excavation Work in Olympia", "Sport and Medicine" and the literary exhibition. It is to be hoped that this report will prove an important source of information and a stimulus for discussion among participants and scholars, students, teachers and coaches; and that it will safeguard the fruitful continuation of the work initiated by the Munich congress. Thanks are due to those who took pains in preparing this document. It will be an essential element within the framework of all that will remain of the Olympic Games of 1972.
