PREFACE

According to Lucian Pye, ‘In the process of political development a national identity crisis occurs when a community finds that what it had once unquestionably accepted as the physical and psychological definitions of its collective self are no longer acceptable under new historic conditions’. (See Lucian Pye, ‘Identity and political culture’, in Leonard Binder et al. (eds), Crisis and Sequences in Political Development, Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1971, pp. 110-11. ) Yet, he states elsewhere that the Chinese have been spared an identity crisis. (See Lucian Pye, The Spirit of Chinese Politics, Cambridge, Mass.: The M. I. T. Press, 1968, p. 5. ) It can be argued, however, that even if one follows Pye’s definition of ‘identity crisis’, one can still reach the conclusion that there is currently an identity crisis in China.

Erik Erikson, who introduced the term of identity as part of his attempt to apply psychoanalytic categories to social and historical issues, appeared to suggest that when matters of identity are conceptualized, they have become a problem. As he put it, ‘and so it comes about that we begin to conceptualize matters of identity at the very time in history when they become a problem’. (See Erikson, Childhood and Society, New York: W. W. Norton & Co., 1963, first published in 1950, p. 282. ).
