Nationalist Protest in China's Foreign Relations

Jessica Chen Weiss

  • The first systematic assessment of nationalist, anti-foreign protest in post-Mao China and its diplomatic consequences, tracing the government's role and foreign reactions to protests that were allowed as well as repressed
  • A new theory that contributes to our understanding of the domestic politics of authoritarian diplomacy, challenging conventional arguments about authoritarian invulnerability to mass audiences
  • Features rich case studies drawn from more than a year of field research and over 150 personal interviews with nationalist activists, protesters, officials, and scholars in China, Japan, and the United States
