Mapping the Monguor

ByGerald RocheKevin Stuart

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This book focuses on the people officially referred to in China as the Tu & known in the West as the Monguor. The Tu live mostly in Qinghai & Gansu provinces, on the northeast Tibetan Plateau. The 13 contributions in this collection shed new light on diversity among the Tu, challenging representations that treat them as a homogenous category. This mapping of diversity is organized according to the three territories where the Monguor live: the Duluun Lunkuang 'The Seven Valleys', Sanchuan 'The Three Valleys', and Khre tse Bzhi 'the Four Estates'. In addition to mapping diversity among the Monguor in terms of these territories, we also map the project of both Chinese state & Western observers to describe & classify the Monguor. Consisting of translations of source materials as well as original research articles, this book is an essential reference work for all those interested in Asia's cultural and linguistic diversity. Includes maps, images, references, & a list of non-English terms with original scripts.
