About the eBook

This much-needed volume explains who ethnic minorities are and how well do they do in China. In addition to offering general information about ethnic minority groups in China, it discusses some important issues around ethnicity, including ethnic inequality, minority rights, and multiculturalism. In doing so, it explores questions such as: How are ethnic minorities represented in China? Are ethnic minorities' gender norms different from those of Han Chinese? How serious is ethnic inequality in education and income? How well are minority cultures and languages preserved in China? Are ethnic minorities marginalized amid China's rapid economic growth? In what ways do China's ethnic policy affect its foreign policy and international relations?

The handbook reviews research on major ethnic issues in China and addresses some key conceptual, theoretical and methodological issues in the study of ethnicity in China. It offers updated research findings on minority ethnicity, consolidates knowledge scattered in different disciplines in the existing literature and provides readers with a multi-disciplinary and multi-faceted coverage in one single volume.Drawing on insights and perspectives from scholars in different continents the contributions provide critical reflections on where the field has been and where it is going, offering readers possible directions for future research on minority ethnicity in China.

The Handbook on Ethnic Minorities in China is an up-to-date, comprehensive, and convenient reference, ideal for teaching and research on ethnic minorities in China.
