Title

Source 6: Xi'an Incident Aftermath Sapajou (1937) ‘The Lesson of Sian’

Subject

A cartoon satirising the problems facing Chiang Kai-Shek's Nationalist Party in the aftermath of the Xi'an incident. This contrasts strongly with images evoking a public outpouring of support for the Generalissimo. The writing etched on the planks reads: 'freedom of the press,' 'military audit,' 'government continuity,' 'civil service,' 'proper supervision,' and 'helplessness'. The cartoonist here depicts Chiang Kai-Shek attempting to 'mend' these various problems facing his government.
