Newchwang before Newchwang

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Though known for its connections with maritime trade at varying degrees before the rise
of the Manchus and their Qing Empire, Newchwang as a fortress did not become a populous
urban settlement in the nineteenth century when the Euro-American observers arrived. Through
examining the history of this trade-related locale in the Qing Empire, this article explores
the broader historical context, especially the Eight Banners System of the Manchus, which
prevented Newchwang from developing into a port-city, and the implications behind.
