Opis: Ethnicity in China: A Critical Introduction - Xiaowei Zang

On the global stage, China is often seen to be a homogenousnation when, in fact, it is a diverse multi-ethnic society, with 55minority nationality groups recognized by the government. Scatteredacross the vast landmass, ethnic minorities in China occupy aprecarious place in the state, where the Confucian concept ofcultural community plays down ethnicity and encourages integrationof minority nationalities into the majority Han-Chinesesociety.

This insightful book reveals the ethnic diversity underlying thePeople's Republic of China and examines how ethnicityintersects with social and political issues through key themes suchas ethnic inequality, the preservation and contribution of the richtraditions and customs of minority cultures, and the autonomy ofregions such as Tibet and Xinjiang. The author investigates theimportant role of the state and Beijing's assimilation stanceto show how its nationality policy, driven by Confucianassimilation ideology, has dictated China's own minorityrights regime and influenced its foreign policy towardsinternational minority rights.

This book by a distinguished scholar of ethnicity in China willbe essential reading for students and scholars of race and ethnicrelations, nationalism and Chinese culture and society.

This is an exceptional book on ethnic minorities in thePeople s Republic of China. Zang is an outstanding authorityon the topic, having already written widely on the societies of theMuslim and other minorities. He has an extraordinarily firm graspboth of the primary and secondary literature and has carried outextensive field work on the minorities. We are very fortunate thathe has now produced a book with more general coverage of issuesconcerning the overall picture of China s ethnic minorities.This is a major contribution to the literature on an importanttopic. I recommend it strongly both for specialists and the generalreader. Colin Mackerras, Griffith University, Queensland,Australia

I am a long-time admirer of Dr. Zang s work. He is a finetheorist and researcher with a knack for spotting importantproblems and utilizing creative methodologies. His writing is clearand crisp, and students will appreciate his latest treatment of acomplex and highly significant topic.
