ABSTRACT

Since 2016, the ideological & moral education of China has been renamed “Morality & Rule of Law.” At the same time, the compilation and publication of textbooks has also been changed into state affairs. This paper analyzes what changes have taken place in the textbooks, and suggests what is the meaning of those change. The changes can be summed up in four: first, there has been an increased explanation of the Chines Constitution; second, a section has been added to explain China’s basic system; third, there has been a lot of detail explaining the state apparatus; finally, there are more depictions of national identity. But these four changes are not necessarily related to the rule of law. Rather, what is highlighted in all those cases is a description of the country, China. It was in order to strengthen the education of the rule of law that “Morality & Rule of Law” have been created, but what was strengthen in the textbooks is the imagination of China.
