pdf epub fb2 djvu



A collection of scholarly essays by nine anthropologists and one political scientist focusing on the problem of ethnic definition and self-definition among China's peripheral peoples, including the Naxi, Yi, Miao, Mongols, and Manchus. The authors see national definition as a contentious process resulting in a fluid and evolving set of customs, linguistic usage, and other behaviors. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
