Abstract

The modernity of China as a nation-state must be distinguished from its continued existence as a community of people, institutions, beliefs and practices with roots in custom and civilization going back to prehistoric times. In contrast to other nations of the Third World emerging out of a colonial past and struggling to cope with both the growing pains of development and the lack of a dominant tradition from which to define a national identity, it might be said, for example, that modem China is largely immune to such crises of culture by virtue of its continuity to the past.
