Oxford University Press

This chapter explores British influence in the Far East through Anglo-Russian agreement over Chinese railway concessions. The Muravev-Scott agreement brought to an end four years of concession hunting in China. Throughout the period, Kimberley and Salibury had both sought to come to an arrangement with Russia that would regularize their conflicting aspirations in the Far East. British commercial and banking interests in China became identified with British political interests and the wider aspects of British foreign policy.

Keywords:   Far East, Chinese railway concessions, Muravev-Scott agreement, Kimberley, Salisbury, British foreign policy, Russia, China
