This insightful book reveals the ethnic diversity underlying the People's Republic of China and examines how ethnicity intersects with social and political issues through key themes such as ethnic inequality, the preservation and contribution of the rich traditions and customs of minority cultures, and the autonomy of regions such as Tibet and Xinjiang. The author investigates the important role of the state and Beijing's assimilation stance to show how its nationality policy, driven by Confucian assimilation ideology, has dictated China's own minority rights regime and influenced its foreign policy towards international minority rights.
This book by a distinguished scholar of ethnicity in China will be essential reading for students and scholars of race and ethnic relations, nationalism and Chinese culture and society.
