November 6, 1901, Britain propose the draft of Anglo-Japanese Alliance to Japan, based on its interests in Far East. Not long after the establishment of the alliance, Russo-Japanese War broke up. After the First War War, US considered the alliance as the greatest obstacle of its power in Far East, thus urged Britain to discontinue the alliance. From then on, Britain's China policy advanced to a new stage. Regarding the Sino-British diplomacy in the post- Anglo-Japanese Alliance period, you may refer to our research finding: LÜ Fangshang, "England's Reinforcement of Shanghai during the Northern Expedition and the Evolution of its China Policy".
