Government authorities, cadets at the Whampoa Military Academy (the \"West Point of China\"), elites, urban professionals, intellectuals, activists, writers and students resisted, collaborated with, or questioned the heroic ideal of the soldier promoted by the Nationalist government. Author Yan Xu casts a wide net, examining military training records, political propaganda, field reports, newspapers, magazines, government documents, memoirs, and novels. In novels and articles, women and teachers worked against the heroic ideal without openly challenging the military, emphasizing the soldier\'s suffering, emotional needs, and poor education and thereby promoting their own importance as caretakers and educators. Students and young people urged enlistment and idealized the warrior-hero, but also managed to effectively criticize the government by organizing soldier relief work to combat government corruption. Xu demonstrates how the CCP\'s strategy of building bonds between soldiers and peasants and humanizing heroes was ultimately a more successful political strategy than the GMD\'s approach of elevating soldiers as model citizens\"<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"Politicizing the soldier image in modern Chinese history -- Training model soldiers at the Whampoa Military Academy -- Enlisting citizens in the military mobilization of the nationalist state -- Wartime soldier support by urban intellectuals and professionals -- Creating gendered images of the soldier figure in literary works -- The construction of the soldier ideal by educated youths -- The army-people bond in mass culture in wartime Yan\'an<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/5601100630<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Government publication<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/5601100630#Series\/asia_in_the_new_millennium<\/a>> ; # Asia in the new millennium.<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"The soldier image and state-building in modern China, 1924-1945<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"1138659258<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780813176741<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/1138659258<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
