Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Provides an account of the history and circumstances of the Kazaks in China, particularly in the multiethnic region Xinjiang, in the 20th century, a period that saw them separated from Kazaks in the USSR, introduced to Communism, and, most recently, allowed to return to family-owned herds and flocks that constituted the local Kazak economy prior to 1949. Discusses factors that impact their future, such as increasing interaction with Han Chinese residents, and Chinese policies that determine patterns of land and water use as well as market exchange. Includes b&w photos. Paper edition (unseen), $24.95. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
