Political Interaction in Defining State Identities in Cases of Extreme Power Differentials: Data from China and Japan

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Get this Document | Similar Titles



Abstract:

A scholarly observer of much of the constructivist literature will notice that it doesn't live up to its roots in symbolic interactionism. Often identities and motives of a more powerful state actor are captured by analysis while the language and identities of weaker or even formerly colonial powers are neglected. While often politically sensitive to the objective interests of the weaker power analysis proceeds, as in the past, with an historical focus on elite actors. Subaltern studies do a better job of capturing the underdog but offer little understanding of how the underdog may develop a new state identity. Drawing from examples in Japanese and Chinese experiences from the middle 1800s this paper will examine how local cultures succeeded in adapting to the Western threat by examining responses and adaptations in action and language to the Western colonial interventions. The narrative will then examine how public meaning systems and state action in the less powerful states changed and helped facilitate new capacities and actions to address the Western onslaught.
