Editorial Reviews

Review

"Xinjiang is well-structured to cover a wide range of domestic and international perspectives and well-edited to make the term "readable" applicable. S. Frederick Starr and his international group of collaborators have my congratulations on the publication of Xinjiang--a fresh, timely, and readable work for anyone concerned about the key issues surrounding China and Asia."

"Xinjiang: China's Muslim borderland." brings together 15 of the world's experts on Xinjiang, and the Muslim ethnic minorities that live there, and provides for a broad survey of a region of China's north-west that has been, for centuries, at the very crossroads of civilisations.

Contributors such as Dru Gladney, James Millward and Gardner Bovington, all renowned experts, introduce us to this magical, historical and extremely important area of China. An area that for reasons of economics and strategic importance, not to mention it's sheer size, comprising 1/6th of China's landmass, provides many challenges and opportunities for China, none more important than the challenges posed by, and for, the near majority Muslim population.

This book, written by academics, is easily accessible for the non academic and is a perfect overall introduction to Xinjiang and in particular the Uyghur Muslim people. It covers history, economics the environment, military considerations and important social issues, the latter the main reason for Xinjiang coming to the world's attention in the late 1980's

This book, first published in 2004 and unfortunately yet to be revised, was borne out of the world's need to understand Xinjiang especially as it concerns the Uyghur people and China's policy towards them. A policy that has resulted in many mass clashes leading to severe oppression, imprisonments, religious persecution, executions and death in "strike hard" programmes and Han in-migration as China attempts to Sinocise the region.

The book, being seven years old, obviously is dated in terms of statistical data provided but, that aside, the issues canvassed are no less relevant today as they were then.

If you read no other book on Xinjiang you will have a more than acceptable level of appreciation of this fantastic region and it's peoples. @ChinaLetter

There are more than 20 million Muslim population in China, among whom Uyghurs make up at least 10 million of them as the biggest and oldest Muslim native people in Uyghur Autonomouse Region, then the Hui (Muslim chinese) stands as the second largest Muslim people spread around the country of China not like Uyghurs, since Uyghur people live only in the north western part of PRC mainly in Uyghur's ancient homeland.
