Failure, Nationalism, and Literature : The Making of Modern Chinese Identity, 1895-1937, Hardback Book

Failure, Nationalism, and Literature : The Making of Modern Chinese Identity, 1895-1937 Hardback

Hardback

Description

How often do we think of cultural humiliation and failure as strengths? Against prevailing views on what it means to enjoy power as individuals, cultures, or nations, this provocative book looks at the making of cultural and national identities in modern China as building success on failure. It reveals the exercise of sovereign power where we least expect it and shows how this is crucial to our understanding of a modern world of conflict, violence, passionate suffering, and cultural difference.
