Abstract
This article discusses the different self-identifications and corresponding role conceptions vis-à-vis a broad range of different subjects used by Chinese governments. It argues that the tianxia concept evolved over time through interaction with neighboring territories: from a concept of beign pluralism to a universalizing and expansionist interpretation. It also traces the tianxia concept and its Confucian underpinnings in today's nationalist discourse in China.
Keywords
