ABSTRACT

This article aims to investigate several aspects of interrelation betweenthe various projects of modern nation-building inside the Qing dynastyand their awareness of Russia, and further to examine the structure of representingthe Other in modern China, comparing the Chinese recognitionof the Russian Revolution of 1905 with their earlier perception of despoticRussia. In order to analyze this problem, it is necessary to inquire into each ofthe subjects of discourses which produced various imaginations ofImperial Russia. I will consider the different ways of thought expressedby the typical Chinese political social groups, such as the government officials,gentry, modern intellectuals and the mass media, revolutionarygroups, while making practical use of Russia as a resource of thinking. I argue that Imperial Russia was represented in different images, dependingon the subjects who formed China’s political discourse and reality.
