This chapter argues that the Chinese economy was going through internal disintegration between 1850 and the late 1870s. This was followed by a successful period of integration which lasted until around the end of the Qing era. Then there was a shiftback towards disintegration until 1937, after which war moved the Nationalist government to the interior, splitting areas of China from the Japanese-occupied parts of the littoral region at the same time. Putting the findings of this and the next chapters together, it is possible to see that the period to about 1911 saw the growth of a complex network of interregional commodity flows, involving vast hinterland areas.
