The international arms trade has a long history, and includes the sale of foreign weapons to Chinese warlords after the First World War.First published in 1982, this book remains the classic account of the arms trade in warlord China.

The second edition includes a new preface that reframes the argument within the paradigm of critical militarism and state criminality. Arming the Chinese tells the story of the warlords who sought weapons for their expanding armies and of the merchants and governments in Europe, Japan, and the United States who provided them. Although the warlords were hearty individualists who retained control over domestic affairs and rarely relied on single foreign suppliers, the armaments trade, Chan argues, was a new form of imperialism, which perpetrated the continued Western and Japanese domination of China.
