From the Publisher
A masterful work of ethnography and history that sheds new light on politico-intellectual elites and teaches us a great deal about how to think minority politics in any society. Litzinger elegantly reveals the imbrication of Yao identities with Chinese state practice and the writing of selves that takes place even at the margins.Louisa Schein, author of Minority Rules: The Miao and the Feminine in Chinas Cultural
Other Chinas is a brilliantly executed study of the politics of ethnography in contemporary China. Litzinger engages theories of power, identity, and modernity in a nuanced and sensitive manner, with strategically deployed ethnographic examples on everything from the writing of minority histories, to the longing for ethnic places, to the staging of minority difference. Chinese socialism, and its aftermath, may never look the same.Ted Swedenburg, co-editor of Displacement, Diaspora, and Geographies of Identity
