(p.299) Epilogue
Remote Homeland, Recovered Borderland

Dan Shao

University of Hawai'i Press

This concluding chapter presents some observations and questions about the recent development of the Manzu community in Northeast China upon the experiences of the Manzu's ancestors and expressions of their homeland in the years of state succession during the tumultuous twentieth century. It considers the central question informing this book: How did the Manchus' failure to maintain sovereignty over their homeland bear upon their re-identification in the twentieth century? The dynamic interactions between the Manchus' identity and Manchuria's territoriality redefined the Manchus' communal membership on both ethnic and national levels, transformed their remote homeland to a national borderland, and reassigned the social and political space for their practice of ethnicity.

Keywords:   Northeast China, Manzu community, Manchus, re-identification, Manchu identity, territoriality, Manchu homeland
