(p.13) 1 Unpacking “New Manchuria” Narratives
Manchukuo Perspectives

Liu Xiaoli

Hong Kong University Press

This chapter re-thinks "New Manchuria" narratives of the Manchukuo period, using a literary perspective informed by Chinese authors. It examines the origins of "New Manchuria" narratives and the propaganda developing around them, to reveal the conceits that motivated Manchukuo's puppet government, and offers a new methodology for more generally interpreting the complexity of Manchukuo’s modernity and colonial modernity.

Keywords:   "New Manchuria", Manchukuo, narratives, propaganda, facts, nostalgia, aesthetics
