Peter Hays Gries

University of California Press

This chapter examines the motivation for popular nationalism in China. It explains that Chinese and Western observers of Chinese nationalism have long disagreed over who the agents of Chinese nationalism are. Chinese pundits ascribe agency to the masses, while Westerners point to the elites. The chapter highlights the tendency of Chinese commentators to describe Chinese nationalism as a mass or popular movement.
