Happy Division of Labour: The War in Iraq (January 2002–May 2003)

  • Simon Shen

Abstract

It is possible to track a tentative division of labour in the previous cases studies. Ordinary citizens seemed to focus most on the expressive layers of nationalism, but paid little attention to other areas, particularly that of civic nationalist construction. This construction process was primarily handled by the party-state: the public either fell behind its progress, or simply ignored it. Since intellectuals had a comparative advantage in being able to point out the benefits and drawbacks of different theories, their greatest impact was exerted in the modification of the international relations strategy. Both the party-state and ordinary citizens indicated their willingness to consider the intellectuals’ proposals in this regard.
