Jessica Chen Weiss, born and raised in Seattle, has written a book, Powerful Patriots: Nationalist Protest in China’s Foreign Relations, about the history of anti-foreign protests in China from 1985 to 2012. Weiss has interviewed over 170 people for this book and has spent about 14 months on field research. Powerful Patriots discusses anti-foreign protests and what role they played for the Chinese government and foreign relations and why certain protests, for example anti-American protests, were allowed during certain years compared to other years.
