Unlocking the history of the Australasian Kuo Min Tang, 1911-2013

Mei-fen Kuo, Judith Brett

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


Dr Sun Yat-Sen's revolutionary movement in China found support in Australia. In Melbourne in 1910 the Young China League was formed, beginning the history of the Chinese Nationalist Party of Australasia, or the Australasian Kuo Min Tang. Today, there are still active branches of the KMT in Sydney and Melbourne.

This book is the story of an association that began as a local club and became the regional headquarters of a transnational political party. It is based on extensive research and large collections of photographs and documents held in Australian KMT archives. Oral history interviews have supplemented this rich documentary record.
