The Invention of China Debate: Carl Zha vs Bill Hayton Carl Zha | talks to author of new book “The Invention of China”. Carl pushes back on the idea that China is a recent construction by arguing the idea of China have always evolved over time and there is a clear continuity down thru the ages.
Bill Hayton was former BBC journalist reporting from Vietnam and Southeast Asia and wrote “The South China Sea: The Struggle for Power in Asia”, on topic of invention of “Han Race”, Chinese language, territory, Chinese nationalism, and China itself. Hayton argues in his new book that China, the country we know today — a nation with borders, citizens and national interests—is a relatively recent concept, dating from a period straddling the turn of the 20th century. Prior to that, China was not — and did not consider itself — a “country” but rather the “Qing Great-State”.
