Abstract:

PreWorld War II Japan, throughout the first half of the twentieth century, was a nation with a strong military force, growing economy, and unique ethnic identity. Contemporary China exhibits similar characteristics in the first part of the twenty-first century. Culture, language, geography, military force, economy, and religion, to name only a few, are frequently referred to by scholars as sources for uniting people under the banner of nationalism. Oftentimes, a mix of these aspects helps to establish national unity and identity. Were Japans military, economy, and culture the main drivers of Japanese nationalism before 1945, and are these same factors driving Chinese nationalism today
