Chapter Summary

This index section presents list of terms that occur in this book A History of Nationalism in Modern Japan table of contents and preface. The book provides a systematic overview of the debates over Japanese national identity and nationalism from the middle of the nineteenth century to the present. It presumes that nationalism is a particular form of identity-politics and as such it foregrounds national identity as it has been articulated by influential Japanese intellectuals. Building on theories that situate nationalism as a mode of politicizing the people, the book presents Japanese nationalism as a contestory practice that positions “the people” as what the nation is and what nationalism seeks to achieve.

Keywords: Japanese national identity; nationalism
