Materials related to Republican-era China in the National Archives of India

This paper presents an overview of the relatively unexplored holdings in the National Archives of India (NAI) related to China in the first half of the twentieth century, and particularly Republican-era China (1911-1949). It may come as a surprise to many to learn that there are literally thousands of documents there that throw light on diverse aspects of China’s modern history and Sino-Indian relations in the modern period. If properly utilized those files could do much to expand, deepen and modify our understanding of modern Sino-Indian relations in particular.
