Contemporary Chinese Studies
This series provides new scholarship and perspectives on modern and contemporary China, including China's contested borderlands and minority peoples; ongoing social, cultural, and political changes; and the varied histories that animate China today.
The Chinese Cultural Revolution, 1966-76
This book decodes the rhetoric of China’s turbulent decade, a time of both brutal iconoclasm and radical experimentation in the arts, to offer new insights into works that have transcended their times.
China's Central Asian Foreign Policy since the Cold War
The New Silk Road Diplomacy traces how China, faced with internal and external challenges to its authority following the collapse of the Soviet Union, constructed a gradualist approach to Central Asia that prioritized multilateral diplomacy.
This innovative account examines the social and political impacts of Chinese teacher's schools in the early 20th century, their role in a society in transition, and their production of grassroots forces that lead to the Communist Revolution.
Intrigues and Ethnopolitics, 1928-49
A counterpoint to erroneous historical assumptions, this book argues that Nationalist sovereignty over Tibet and China's other border regions was the result of rhetorical grandstanding by Chiang Kai-shek and his regime.
