Produktbeschreibung
Scholars have long examined the relationship between nation-states and their "internal others," such as immigrants and ethnoracial minorities. Contested Embrace shifts the analytic focus to explore how a state relates to people it views as "external members" such as emigrants and diasporas. Specifically, Jaeeun Kim analyzes disputes over the belonging of Koreans in Japan and China, focusing on their contested relationship with the colonial and postcolonial states in the Korean peninsula.

Extending the constructivist approach to nationalisms and the culturalist view of the modern state to a transnational context, Contested Embrace illuminates the political and bureaucratic construction of ethno-national populations beyond the territorial boundary of the state. Through a comparative analysis of transborder membership politics in the colonial, Cold War, and post-Cold War periods, the book shows how the configuration of geopolitics, bureaucratic techniques, and actors' agency shapes the making, unmaking, and remaking of transborder ties. Kim demonstrates that being a "homeland" state or a member of the "transborder nation" is a precarious, arduous, and revocable political achievement.

Contents and Abstracts Introduction: Making
Unmaking
and Remaking Transborder Ties chapter abstract This chapter begins with three ethnographic vignettes that reveal the common experiences of colonial-era ethnic Korean migrants and their descendants in Japan and northeast China: forcible separation from and neglect by their state of origin; shifting sense of loyalty and belonging to multiple states involved; efforts to maintain
rebuild
or take advantage of cross-border family ties; and complex dealings with various documentation practices in attempts to reclaim membership in their putative "homeland." The chapter situates the book in the literature on transborder membership politics and discusses its distinctive contributions. Building on a wide range of literature on official classification practices
modern identification techniques
the symbolic power of the state
and the control of cross-border migration
this chapter proposes a set of theoretical arguments about how states' registration and documentation practices contribute to the making
unmaking
and remaking of the "homeland state" and the "transborder nation." Chapter 1: Engaging Colonial Subjects on the Move: Colonial State
Migration
and Diasporic Nationhood chapter abstract Chapter 1 analyzes the construction of the legal
bureaucratic
and semantic infrastructures of Korean nation-building
which emerged amidst the dramatic transformation of the regional interstate system and the massive intraregional migration in the beginning of the twentieth century. By comparatively examining the colonial state's engagement with Korean migrants in Japan and Manchuria
Chapter 1 shows how these infrastructures helped the colonial state claim migrants of peninsular origin uniformly as "its own"-if with varying degrees of success-despite differences among these migrants
their resistance to this compulsory incorporation
and the competing claims made by other states. The colonial state's transborder engagement contributed to the formation of the Korean nation as a legally codified
pervasively institutionalized
and enduringly documented community both inside and outside the colony
providing a critical institutional scaffolding for the diasporic imagination of Korean nationalism and laying the ground for transborder membership politics for decades to come. Chapter 2: "Who Owns the Nation?" Cold War Competition over Zainichi Koreans in Japan chapter abstract Chapter 2 examines the prolonged and vehement competition between North and South Korea over the allegiance of colonial-era Korean migrants who remained in Japan in the context of decolonization and the Cold War. The divergent transborder nation-building strategies that the two postcolonial states employed to make their own docile citizens out of this opaque and recalcitrant population are identified. North Korea launched a successful repatriation campaign and heavily invested in Korean enclaves
presenting itself as a safe haven in which marginalized Koreans could find an escape. South Korea instead fashioned itself as a broker that could facilitate their integration into the Japanese mainstream
and a gatekeeper that could control their engagement with families and home communities in South Korea. The control of the bureaucratic persona of Koreans in Japan
buttressed by the consensual practices of other states
was critical for South Korea's eventual ascendancy in this competition. Chapter 3: Beyond "Bamboo Curtain" and "Hermit Kingdom": Korean Chinese between Two Socialist Fatherlands chapter abstract The successful incorporation of Koreans who remained in Manchuria into communist China led to their disownment by South Korea
yet this incorporation was not necessarily seen as incompatible with their special tie to North Korea. Chapter 3 examines how China
North Korea
and the Korean Chinese embraced or challenged varying interpretations of this transborder tie
and how they reconfigured the boundary and the meaning of the Korean nation. Beyond the realm of ethnic minority policies
it examines the changing management of several cross-border migration flows (both authorized and unauthorized) as a lens with which to explore the unfolding of this relationship. It shows how various forms of cross-border transactions profoundly shaped the war-making
state-making
and nation-making (or unmaking) processes in both countries
as well as the life trajectories of Korean Chinese who straddled their two fatherlands to navigate the turbulent socialist transition in both countries. Chapter 4: Reluctant Embrace and Struggles for Inclusion: Korean Chinese "Return" Migration to Post-Cold War South Korea chapter abstract Post Cold-War transborder membership politics gained momentum from the influx of Korean Chinese into South Korea. Chapter 4 highlight the protracted confusion
uncertainty
and indeterminacy that both state and non-state actors in South Korea experienced in trying to "properly" classify the long forgotten ethnonational kin
substantiate their belated claim to membership
and regulate their access to the affluent "homeland." It also reveals the porosity of the walls within which South Korea enclosed itself to exclude the Korean Chinese from transborder membership. On the one hand
Korean Chinese migrants struggled to redefine their collective identity in the legal
political
and public spheres by presenting themselves as an integral part of the Korean nation. But equally importantly
Korean Chinese migrants challenged the state's monopolistic truth claim about their individual identities by engaging in micropolitical struggles in bureaucratic settings
mobilizing alternative genres of identification and creating false paper identities for themselves. Conclusion: Ethnic Nationalism
Globalization
and the Future of Transborder Membership Politics chapter abstract The conclusion recapitulates the book's five main theoretical arguments. It shows how each chapter highlights the fundamentally political
performative
and constitutive nature of transborder nation-building; examines the bureaucratic underpinning of transborder membership politics; reveals its historical nature; demonstrates the importance of the broader interstate system in determining the efficacy of the state's transborder claims-making; and offers a deeply agentic portrayal of transborder membership politics by attending not only to the macropolitics but also to the micropolitics of identity. It also demonstrates the values and the limitations of ethnic nationalism as an analytic category by identifying the historical genesis of the bureaucratic and semantic infrastructures of ethnic nationalism
its variable manifestations (or lack thereof) in different policy domains and repertoires of contention
and its persistence as well as metamorphosis over time. A discussion on the future of transborder membership politics in the contemporary phase of globalization follows.
