This chapter considers the events where anthropology becomes a part of the nation-making project during the mid-twentieth-century in East Asia. It looks at the duality of Japanese and Chinese anthropology during a specific time frame and a process of knowledge-production during a problematic political era in East Asia that cast some doubt on the concepts of “reliability” and “authenticity”.

Keywords:   Japanese anthropology, Chinese anthropology, East Asia, reliability, authenticity, knowledge-production
