1937

"Americans saw China as a great future trade partner and President Franklin Roosevelt himself had family business connections in China. Americans applauded the advances that American Christian missions seemed to be making in the country. China would one day be the United States of Asia: prosperous, Christian, and free."

-From Chris Bayly and Tim Harper. Forgotten Armies: The Fall of British Asia, 1941-1945.
