520    "The Soldier Image and State-Building in Modern China, 
       1924-1945 is the first study in English to explore the 
       ways in which the figure of the soldier was employed to 
       advance the ideological and cultural agendas of a variety 
       of citizen groups during the first half of the twentieth 
       century in China. 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"--
