Summary
  • This volume presents an exploration of the origins of nationalism and cultural identity in China, tracing the ways in which a large, early modern empire of Eurasia, the Qing incorporated neighbouring, but disparate, political traditions into a new style of emperorship
  • "In this exploration of the origins of nationalism and concepts of racial identity in China, Pamela Kyle Crossley traces the shifting ideologies of a large, early modern land-based empire, the Qing (1636-1912). Drawing on a wide variety of primary sources, Crossley argues that motifs introduced under the Qing in the eighteenth century - part of the crystallizing categories of identity that the Qing themselves promoted - continue to distort the modern understanding of Qing origins. What has often been repudiated by nationalist foes of empire, it turns out, is frequently itself a creation of empire."--Jacket
