In the last chapter we examined the range of Hong Kong attitudes at large towards belonging to a nation; in this chapter, we consider in more depth the underlying logic of belonging to a nation through one particular group: Hong Kong university students, as compared to mainland Chinese and American students in Hong Kong, students coming from the most powerful and among the most nationalistic countries in the world. By analyzing the views of these three groups, we can see how the senses of “belonging to a nation” now developing in Hong Kong may both parallel and diverge from those held in these other societies; we can thereby come to better understand the particular and peculiar nature of “belonging to a nation” as it is developing in Hong Kong.
