The Making of the Republican Citizen: Political Ceremonies and Symbols in China, 1911-1929

Overview

How did the major political events of the early 20th century affect the everyday lives of ordinary people in China? Being a modern citizen of the Chinese republic meant repudiating much of the very ritual that had previously defined one as Chinese. This book uses a wealth of new sources to look at the political history of the period and to detail the complex interactions between an ever more activist state and its new citizens.
