Imagining the Russian Concession in Hankou

Alan Crawford


The Russian empire established a territorial concession in the Chinese treaty port of Hankou in 1896. This article traces the development of the idea of establishing a Russian concession from its inception to the early years of its development. This article suggests that the Russian Concession was not a simple case of imitation, but was being developed in the context of a broader shift in ideas about the proper relationship between economy, nation, and the Russian imperial state.
