Contestation and Adaptation: The Politics of National Identity in China
Contestation and Adaptation unravels the complexities of national-identity contestation among various ethnic minority groups in China. It focuses on the interactions between domestic and international forces that inform ethnic groups' national-identity contestation, positing a theoretical framework where international factors play a significant role in determining why and when ethnic groups will contest the national identities imposed on them by central governments as part of the nation-building process.

Simmering grievances and occasional outbursts of social unrest among ethnic minority populations in China challenge not only the ruling party's legitimacy and governance, but also contemporary Chinese national identity and the territorial integrity of the Chinese state. But, as Enze Han points out, of the fifty-five ethnic minority groups in China, only the Tibetans and Uyghurs have forcefully contested the idea of a Chinese national identity. He argues that whether ethnic groups contest those national identities depends on whether they perceive a better, achievable alternative. In particular, Han argues that ethnic groups with extensive external kinship networks are most likely to perceive a capacity to achieve better circumstances and are, therefore, more likely to politically mobilize to contest national identity. In the absence of such alternatives ethnic groups are more likely to cope with their situation through emigration, political ambivalence, or assimilation. Using this theoretical framework, the book compares the way that five major ethnic minority groups in China negotiate their national identities with the Chinese nation-state: Uyghurs, Chinese Koreans, Dai, Mongols, and Tibetans. Overall, Contestation and Adaptation sheds light on the nation-building processes in China over the past six decades and the ways that different groups have resisted or acquiesced in their dealings with the Chinese state and majority Han Chinese society.

Around the World in Eighty Days

Around the World in Eighty Days By Michael Palin
Publisher: Pho..enix 2009 | 288 Pages | ISBN: 0753823241 | EPUB | 2 MB

Around the World in Eighty Days
For a TV series, the BBC dispatched Monty Python comedian Palin to travel the world in 80 days, following in the steps of Phileas Fogg-Jules Verne's hero in the novel Around the World in 80 Days -who made the voyage in 1872. Palin's notes on the journey are collected here in chronological order. Forbidden to use modern transport, he made the trip by means available to his predecessor-train, boat, camel, etc.-and handily crossed the globe in the time allotted, passing through Italy, Greece, Egypt, India, China, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan and the U.S. The results in prose are improvisational, amiable, anecdotal and yet curiously flat-Palin's characteristic wit is missing. Photos are mostly conventional tourist shots, though a few color glimpses of Shanghai and other sights are vivid.

After Hiroshima: The United States, Race and Nuclear Weapons in Asia, 1945-1965

Matt Jones, "After Hiroshima: The United States, Race and Nuclear Weapons in Asia, 1945-1965"
English | 2010 | ISBN: 0521881005 | 514 pages | PDF | 2 MB

After Hiroshima: The United States, Race and Nuclear Weapons in Asia, 1945-1965
By emphasising the role of nuclear issues, After Hiroshima provides a new history of American policy in Asia between the dropping of the atomic bombs on Japan and the escalation of the Vietnam War. Drawing on a wide range of documentary evidence, Matthew Jones charts the development of American nuclear strategy and the foreign policy problems it raised, as the United States both confronted China and attempted to win the friendship of an Asia emerging from colonial domination. In underlining American perceptions that Asian peoples saw the possible repeat use of nuclear weapons as a manifestation of Western attitudes of 'white superiority', he offers new insights into the links between racial sensitivities and the conduct of US policy, and a fresh interpretation of the transition in American strategy from massive retaliation to flexible response in the era spanned by the Korean and Vietnam Wars.

China Contested: Western Powers in East Asia

Matthew J. Flynn "China Contested: Western Powers in East Asia"
Chelsea House Publications | English | 2006-07-30 | ISBN: 079108650X | 132 pages | PDF | 2,4 MB

China Contested: Western Powers in East Asia
Riding the wave of one of the most accelerated economic expansions in history, China is on the brink of emerging as a global juggernaut. One of the chief reasons for its success has been its ability to unite itself, expel the physical presence of Western powers from its soil, and reoccupy Hong Kong and Macao. "" examines the country's artificial divisions over time, tracing interference by the West back to the early 16th century. This intrusion peaked during the establishment of Western spheres of influence in the late 19th century, yet it continues to resonate today with the standoff over Taiwan. Author Matthew J. Flynn points out that while China has endured many divisions throughout its past, the borders imposed by the West were strictly political and had no geographic or historical basis. "China Contested" will help students grasp the concept that China's determination to be recognized as a great power coincided with its resolve to eliminate the arbitrary borders created by the West.
