Abstract

Often forgotten, China’s migrating journalists made powerful friends to win recognition as allies during the rising threat of the Pacific war. This study reveals fresh insights into how this minority press expanded professional and informal networks to gain credibility as patriots. The Chinese-Australian news owners interacted with political and press centres to secure support for their equal rights crusade. Their communities also benefited from a global media campaign to promote their alliance in the Second World War. This chapter draws on rare news sources, personal correspondence and top-secret surveillance reports to trace the untold story of Chinese-Australian journalism from the 1920s to the 1940s. The outspoken editors contributed to more inclusive notions of nationhood, patriotism and international cooperation.©
