9780195859881: China's Minorities: Integration and Modernization in the Twentieth Century

China is home to 55 recognized minority groups including Tibetans, Muslim Uygurs, Mongolians, and Koreans. This insightful study looks at the status of minorities in China throughout the twentieth century, placing particular emphasis on population growth and decline, the implementation of central government policies aimed towards them, economic development, and their international relations. Colin Mackerras charts the dynamics of the political, social, and economic modernization of the communities themselves as well as their integration into greater China. Emerging from his thoughtful assessment of the current status of Chinese minorities are predictions about what the future will hold for these elements of contemporary Chinese society.
