These files represent a large portion of the archives of the British-run municipal police force

based in Shanghai’s former International Settlement. The Special Branch of the Shanghai

Municipal Police was charged with providing an orderly environment for Shanghai’s foreign

trade and commerce. This branch’s prime responsibilities were collecting intelligence on

political demonstrations, strikes, labor and social unrest, foreign and domestic subversive

activities, and areas of dispute between the International Settlement and the Chinese

government. Many files are organized around a particular topic and contain different kinds

of source material.
