Edited by: Wang Xi'en

Contributions by: Zhang Jianping

The Ethnic Issues of China in the 20th Century includes the conflicts between foreign aggression and Democratic Revolution, ethnic issues, ethnic policies, and the development in Xinjiang, Mongols, Tibet, and other regions in China during the 20th century time. Since China is a country with 56 nationalities, it adopts its own ethnic policy. With a population of over 1.3 billion, which includes multiple nationalities, the western world may wonder how China can maintain the harmony and high speed economic development in so many different regions. This book gives a detailed analysis of the historical background and reasons for such a diversity in the country, including a vivid description of the ethnic policy in China in different minority nations, and the interpretation of the issues and solutions for some special regions. This is a comprehensive study on the ethnic issues in China, from the chronological aspect to the policy making aspect, and the inner and international impact on Chinese ethnic issues.
