Reviews

"Shaoying Zhang and Derek McGhee should be commended for providing an innovative and rigorous analysis of the relationship between state policy and ethnic conflict in Xinjiang. In particular, their focus on the ways in which officials in Xinjiang selectively interpret and implement central government policy illuminates the importance of factoring in local agents of state power in analyses of contemporary Chinese governance" - Dr Michael Clarke, Griffith Asia Institute, Queensland, Australia
