Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This important study explores the multifaceted experience of Mongols in China, past and present, as their identity balances precariously between historical memory and their contemporary position as an ethnic minority. Uradyn E. Bulag assesses the intricate relationship between socialism and nationalism that generates both resistance and complicity and defines the moral dilemmas that have confronted Mongols and Chinese in negotiating nationality issues. Written by an indigenous anthropologist trained in the West, the work is informed by the author's sophisticated understanding of theory and personal sense of society and history. Breaking new ground in the study of Chinese and Mongol history and ethnicity, the author offers a fresh interpretation of China viewed from the perspective of its peripheries.

Book News Annotation:

Bulag's learned, thoughtful, and beautifully written study delves into the development of Chinese notions of the Mongols and concurrent adaptation of Chinese ideology by the Mongols themselves. Bulag (anthropology, Hunter College and Graduate Center of the City U. of New York) seamlessly incorporates his critique of current research on Inner Mongolia within an analysis of Mongolian identity and politics and utilizing comparative analysis with other "marginal" areas of China, especially Xinjiang and Tibet. His research is based on archival study and interviews in Inner Mongolia (Bulag himself is originally from there).
