The Noulens Affair, a major international espionage case while the Nationalist Government was in power, once caused a heated discussion among the public both at home and abroad, and various forces launched rescue operations thereby. However, what is thought-provoking is that the Soviet Union had not yet established diplomatic relations with China and could enjoy no privileges in China when the case happened in 1931. Why is the Noulens Affair, therefore, seen as China's opportunity to recover extraterritoriality? What does an espionage case have anything to do with the self-esteem of the Chinese nation? The entire affair was but political aftermath resulted from the so-called ＂Li-san＂ line advocated by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and it also led to the frustration encountered by the Communist International (Comintern) in the Far East. The cleaning up of the Noulens Affair was regarded as an important victory by the Investigation Section of the Organization Department of the Chinese Kuomintang Central Committee. How did Zhang Chong, the then secretary-general, fight against spies from the Communist International? The aforementioned questions are the main foci of this study.
