Redefining Nationalism in Modern China studies the contradictory domestic responses towards Chinese nationalism and ties Chinese nationalism to the larger context of international relations theory and ideology. Shen explores the possibility of whether the contemporary nationalist movement in China, a movement that is non-unitary, segmented and practised by different people for different purposes, could be reshaped and absorbed by neighbouring regions. He selects recent case studies such as the Chinese response to 9/11 and the war in Iraq and includes a detailed discussion on the intellectual battle in China (the liberals versus the "New Leftists"). Using a variety of previously untapped sources, including a range of news sources within China itself, weblogs, and interviews with prominent figures, Shen makes a powerful new argument about the causes and consequences of the new Chinese nationalism.
