    This detailed and visually compelling ethnography explores the changing nature of wedding practices in a village in Qinghai Province. Researched and compiled by a promising young scholar, the narrative situates the village of Bon skor in the complex socio-political context of contemporary Amdo, and introduces the reader to all aspects of the matrimonial process. As much about continuity as it is change, negotiation as it is difference, the Last Dragon Banquet? embodies all the strengths of autoethnography: linguistically sophisticated, culturally rich, and politically informed. It is a very welcome addition to the Asian Highlands Perspectives series. – Mark Turin, PhD, Chair, First Nations Languages Program; Director, Digital Himalaya Project and World Oral Literature Project, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada.

Avoiding generalizations, the descriptions are careful to note the melding of traditions with new practices emerging from influences of technology and social currents flowing throughout the Plateau. Multi-dimensional and process-oriented, the text provides a wealth of information that will benefit present and future scholars. – Mark Bender, Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures, The Ohio State University< Less
