Example text

Some Boxers believed they were invulnerable to swords and bullets in combat and they drew on an eclectic pantheon [wide-ranging collection] of novels, and street plays. Although they lacked a unified leadership, Boxers recruited local farmers and other workers made desperate by the disastrous floods that had been followed by droughts in Shandong; they began to call for the ending of special privileges enjoyed by Chinese Christian converts and to attack both converts and Christian missionaries. By early 1899 they had destroyed or stolen a good deal of property from Chinese Christians and had killed several converts in the Shandong-Hebei border area, seriously alarming the foreigners.

During the war, many of the beleaguered Westerners had taken refuge in the mission centres in the concession areas in the European-dominated ports, such as Shanghai and Tianjin, a move that suggested strongly to the Chinese that the missionaries were part of that political, economic and cultural dominance to which China was being subjected.

The uprising The Boxers began their attacks on the 'hairy men' in 1898 in Shandong, a province in which resentment of the 'foreign devils' was particularly marked. The following figured among the reasons: • • • • the large number of foreigners in the province the large amounts of territory that had been taken over by non-Chinese the spread of railways and the building of mines, which had offended local sensitivities the interference in local customs and traditions by domineering Christian missionaries.
