War, riots, rebellion, corruption, murder, infidelity, a failed hanging in a British jail in Shanghai -- such were the experiences of British and American lawyers in the mid-19th century. That's when foreign gunboats forced China, Japan and Korea to open to the outside world under treaties which required all three countries to exempt foreign nationals from local laws. This led to the establishment of British and American court systems which operated in China for over 100 years and in Japan for almost half a century -- leaving a huge impact on how China and Japan view the world. In this talk organized by Capital M, author Douglas Clark will discuss his three-volume work Gunboat Justice; the history of this era of extraterritoriality; and the British and American courts that administered Western justice over their nationals in the Far East. Highlighted by cartoons and images, Clark's talk -- and book -- present a fascinating cast of characters both on and before the bench."
