Relationships between affect and national identity are a crucial aspect of the critical perspectivism ushered in by contemporaneity. This book is an important contribution to knowledge of those relationships in Asian contexts. -- Paul Gladston, Professor of Contemporary Visual Cultures and Critical Theory, University of Nottingham
Given the contemporary recrudescence of nationalism in varied forms across Europe, Asia, and North America, this publication is a timely one, providing significant insights from a wide variety of Asian perspectives. -- Christopher Connery, Professor, World Literature and Cultural Studies, University of California, Santa Cruz
Asian nationalisms have often been discussed as state ideologies. The present volume rather discusses Asian nations as communal identities constituted by affects. Its demonstration of the seamless interweaving of love and hate in the operation of Asian nations is both fascinating and disturbing. -- Kristen Nordhaug, Professor of Development Studies, Oslo and Akershus University College
This illuminating collection offers grounded studies of experiences shaped by various nationalist moods being mobilised across Asia. It is also a riveting read for anyone anywhere concerned by the new forms of populism, civic disenchantment, `hate-loving' speech, and digital militancy erupting now world-wide. Posing the question of conviviality in an age of precarity, this book helps us all to think. -- Meaghan Morris, Professor of Gender and Cultural Studies, University of Sydney
