Chinese Cyber Nationalism offers the first comprehensive examination of the social and ideological movement that mixes Confucian cultural traditions and advanced media technology. Over the past decade, the Internet has increasingly become a communication center, organizational platform, and channel of execution by which Chinese nationalistic causes have been promoted throughout the world. Dr. Xu Wu chronicles the movement's evolutionary path through five distinct developing phases that cover the span of twelve years. Through the use of online surveys and in-depth interviews with foreign policy makers, nationalist webmasters, and leading intellectuals in China, this book analyzes the characteristics and political implications of the movement. Xu presents a unique framework for scholars to understand China's modernization and historic return onto the world stage. Chinese Cyber Nationalism is a important addition to the study of political communication and China's foreign policy.

The title of this book is a bit academic-leaning, yet the content is very eye-opening, up-to-date, and interesting to read. I highly recommend this book to those who want to know what really drives the world's next superpower in foreign policy arena. It also provides a telling example of how the newest communication technology can reenergize one of the oldest civilizations in the world. China + Cyber Sphere + Nationalism, the author surely digged into a gold mine and discovered great treasure in it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
