In Comparison with the Dragon: Imagining China and Constructing America’s National Identity

Author:   Wang Lixin    Update Time:2015年06月02日

Throughout the period from the late eighteenth to the mid-twentieth century, China was invariably the “other” contrasted with the US in the latter’s imagination. Imagination of this “other "reflected the fears, aspirations and yearnings of Americans, and helped define American identity and its position in the world in different historical periods. It was a way for the US to reflect on and conceive of itself, and was therefore profoundly autobiographical. Americans should give up their manner of understanding and imagining China within the framework of their own values and interests and obtain a clear understanding of the feelings, desires and aspirations of the Chinese people, so as to lay a sound foundation in terms of feelings for the stable development of Sino-US relations.
