"This is a fascinating and unique book, offering deep insight into Chinese culture, history, religion, philosophy, nationalism, politics, and foreign relations." — CHOICE

"This book is suggesting an original theoretical framework that deconstructs (not just theoretically but empirically) Chineseness that is often reified in the binary image of China versus the other. It shows the fluidity and multiplicity of Chineseness not only in cultural and discursive realms but in policies and real politics." — Jungmin Seo, Yonsei University
