Example text

A new cadre of civilian police officers were transferred to Korea from Japan, where political surveillance training and practice were far more sophisticated and rigorous. These moves were effective, for no further major demonstrations occurred under Japanese colonial rule. Ultimately, it became impossible to conduct even minor pro-independence political activity on Korean soil. Saito’s second objective was to placate and co-opt those sections of the Korean population which stood to benefit from more gradualist and moderate colonial policies.

In some areas of major interest such as the economy and the suppression of Korean nationalism, the Japanese were highly interventionist, whereas in other areas such as social policy they left many aspects of Korean tradition and custom to continue virtually undisturbed. In all fields, however, Japan determined colonial policy in the broader context of its domestic and foreign policies. We therefore begin our account of the Japanese colonial period with a consideration of this context. Japanese colonial policy reflected the world-view of its rulers.

In 1909 the Bank of Korea had already been established as a central bank, and after 1910 the largely autonomous royal household economy was amalgamated with the overall colonial economy. Education, public health, veterinary extension services, reforestation and flood control programmes likewise proceeded rapidly. However, such material improvements made little impact on the great mass of Koreans. The experiences they remembered were of individual and collective contempt and ill-treatment, denial of civil liberties, strict censorship, expropriation, new taxes and fines on wines and tobacco, the forced cultivation of new cash crops, and an avalanche of new regulations covering animal slaughtering, common cemeteries, firewood gathering, and the licensing of traditional medicine (hanyak) practitioners.
