Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This slim volume is an outstanding book on nationalism and Chinese foreign policy. Highly recommended for upper-division undergraduate collections and above." Choice

"...Zheng's new book has succeeded admirably in dissecting and analyzing the many dimensions of contemporary Chinese nationalism...the intricate and multilayered way Zheng deals with the subject has yielded a richly detailed synthesis of the subject. The book is a major contribution to our understanding of China's new nationalism in the 1990s." Canadian Journal of Political Science

"Zheng Yongnian has provided us with an excellent road map for the extraordinary range of opinions among today's Chinese intellectuals concerning Chinese nationalism, external threats to China, and China as a threat to others...[it] offers an excellent presentation of current perspectives on the forces that are shaping Chinese national identity and the debate over the role of the Chinese state. It is also a reminder that even some of China's leading intellectuals do not see Western civilization as benign or Western states as innocent in their intentions toward China." China Review International, Vol. 7
