Description - Xinjiang by S. Frederick Starr

Eastern Turkestan, now known as Xinjiang or the "New Territory," makes up a sixth of China's land mass. Absorbed by the Qing in the 1880s and re-conquered by Mao in 1949, this Turkic-Muslim region of China's remote northwest borders on formerly Sovier Central Asia, Afghanistan, Kashmir, Mongolia, and Tibet. Will Xinjiang participate in China's twenty-first century ascendancy, or will nascent Islamic radicalism in Xinjiang expand the orbit of instability in a dangerous part of the world? The authors of this comprehensive survey have combined their fieldwork experience, linguistic skills, and disciplinary expertise to assemble the first multifaceted introduction to Xinjiang. The volume surveys the region's geography; its history of military and political subjugation to China; economic, social, and commercial conditions; demography, public health, and ecology; and patterns of adaptation, resistance, opposition, and evolving identities.
