Abstract :

The UK did not have a clear-cut policy regarding the China Crisis of 1897-88 with Germany's occupation of Kiao-Chow Bay. Its essentially reactive policy throughout the crisis was dictated by its concern over its prestige as a first-class power in the Far East. It could not support the German action since it was not sure if there had been no connivance between Russia and Germany over the occupation. British-German relations remained strained at that time as well.
