Brown Bag Session

“Poison Money”: The Chinese Rublezone in War and Revolution

Dr Rachel Lin's talk linked the history of currency policy between ruble and yen in the wake of the collapse of the Qing Empire in China and the Russian Revolution. The Chinese government tried to exploit the weakness of the Russian state in order to get rid of the ruble zone in Manchuria during the period of revolutionary turmoil.

This is the fourth in a series of 'Politics and IR Brown Bag Lunch Sessions' organised by the Centre on Asia and Globalisation. Launched in Academic Year 2017/18, the new initiative aims to provide a more casual and intimate setting for CAG faculty members to share their nascent research ideas on international relations over lunch, as well as engaging in unconstrained and thought-provoking discussion.
