These authors show that nationalist rhetoric on ‘relevant people’ can go beyond a nation-state and its territoriality, and, more importantly, that postnational overseas communities can actively participate in nationalist politics and echo the state (Glick Schiller et al. 1992; Callahan 2006; Liu Hong 2005). Overseas Chinese, for example, are actively engaged in not only cosmopolitan practices, but the production of nationalism and a particular national identity: in Callahan’s expression, they constitute ‘an important cosmopolitan part of nationalism’ (Callahan 2006: 150).
Chen’s Cuban mission laid the foundations for establishing China’s first consulates in the territories with a substantial presence of overseas Chinese. These diplomatic missions provided first-hand information on the conditions of Chinese workers in ports across Asia, and later in gold mines in America. Overseas Chinese were now seen as victims of coolie brokers, ill treated and discriminated at their workplaces abroad. Rather than being made to feel guilty for abandoning Confucian values and culture, they were pitied and considered in need of governmental protection.
Instead of downplaying the framework of the nation-state as less relevant in the era of globalisation, this book analyses how the nation-state adapts to the changes caused by globalisation, is shaped by them, and refines its assumed postulates. It shows that, in the case of China, both ethnic minorities and overseas Chinese are critical to this redefinition. The analytical perspective proposed here delineates the dynamics of designating subjects of the Chinese nation across its territorial boundaries, and allows us to trace how those dynamics have been shifting along with the political, sociocultural and economic contexts, both domestic and global.
