Ethnic Harmony, Colonial Reality

Ethnic Harmony, Colonial Reality

Manchus, Manchoukuo, and the ROC

(p.135) 4 Ethnic Harmony, Colonial Reality
Remote Homeland, Recovered Borderland

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter studies the status of the Manchus in the formation, dissemination, and reception of the “ethnic harmony” rhetoric in Manchoukuo in comparison to similar ethnic rhetoric in the ROC during the Sino-Japanese fight over Manchuria. To the Japanese colonial authority, the rhetoric of ethnic harmony helped to suppress the locals' suspicion of the Japanese presence and negate the restoration efforts of Qing loyalists. This rhetoric of ethnic relations in Manchoukuo contrasted with the assimilation strategy employed in the Japanese colonies in Korea and Taiwan and with the racial demarcation between the colonizers and the colonized in the colonies of the Western powers.

Keywords:   ethnic harmony, Manchoukuo, Japanese colonies, Japanese colonial authority, racial demarcation, assimilation strategy, Western powers
