Availability: Ready to download

Despite more than a decade of rapid economic development, rising living standards, and large-scale improvements in infrastructure and services, China's western borderlands are awash in a wave of ethnic unrest not seen since the 1950s. Through on-the-ground interviews and firsthand observations, the international experts in this volume create an invaluable record of the con Despite more than a decade of rapid economic development, rising living standards, and large-scale improvements in infrastructure and services, China's western borderlands are awash in a wave of ethnic unrest not seen since the 1950s. Through on-the-ground interviews and firsthand observations, the international experts in this volume create an invaluable record of the conflicts and protests as they have unfolded--the most extensive chronicle of events to date. The authors examine the factors driving the unrest in Tibet and Xinjiang and the political strategies used to suppress them. They also explain why certain areas have seen higher concentrations of ethnic-based violence than others. Essential reading for anyone struggling to understand the origins of unrest in contemporary Tibet and Xinjiang, this volume considers the role of propaganda and education as generators and sources of conflict. It links interethnic strife to economic growth and connects environmental degradation to increased instability. It captures the subtle difference between violence in urban Xinjiang and conflict in rural Tibet, with detailed portraits of everyday individuals caught among the pressures of politics, history, personal interest, and global movements with local resonance.

    This book helps to understand why there is unrest in Xinjiang and Tibet. But some of the chapters are more explaining everyday life and connection between minority and Han-Chinese Majority. The full connection to why it leads to protest and what makes it unsatisfied for the minorities is getting more and more lost towards the last chapters of this book while the first chapters kept more of my interest. But still a good book to find and understand the main reasons for the unrest and how politic w This book helps to understand why there is unrest in Xinjiang and Tibet. But some of the chapters are more explaining everyday life and connection between minority and Han-Chinese Majority. The full connection to why it leads to protest and what makes it unsatisfied for the minorities is getting more and more lost towards the last chapters of this book while the first chapters kept more of my interest. But still a good book to find and understand the main reasons for the unrest and how politic works in China (which is in reality often completely different of what I thought) and to get a bit of a look on how Han Chinese see the other ethnics.
