Re: De Weerdt on Tackett, 'The Origins of the Chinese Nation: Song China and the Forging of an East Asian World Order'

Author’s response: I will take advantage of this “reply” box to respond to Professor De Weerdt’s many criticisms of my book, and also to contextualize some of my claims for non-China specialists. We can break down Professor De Weerdt’s critique into two fundamental issues: 1) did I provide enough evidence to demonstrate that a form of “nationalism” emerged in eleventh-century China? 2) did I correctly identify the causal mechanisms to explain the emergence of this Song Dynasty form of nationalism?
