China's fifty-five officially recognised ethnic minorities form about 8% of the Chinese population, with over
100 million people, and occupy over 60% of China's territory. They are very diverse, and the degree of
modernisation among them varies greatly. This book examines the current state of China's ethnic
minorities at a time when ethnic affairs and globalisation are key forces affecting the contemporary world.
It considers the fields of policy, economy, society and international relations, including the impact of
globalisation and outside influences.
