Ethnic Revival in Southwest China
Minorities in the Chinese state face a paradox: modern, cosmopolitan, sophisticated people — good Chinese citizens, in other words — do not engage in unmodern behaviors. Minorities, however, are expected to engage in them.
"McCarthy's fine study is an important new contribution to evolving understandings of 'multiculturalism with Chinese characteristics,' forcing readers to contemplate how completing forms of ethnic nationalism interacts with shared forms of citizenship practice. This book is a must-read for both scholars and students of ethnic relations in Reform-era-China."—The China Journal
"McCarthy provides rich new ethnographic materials on the contemporary Dai, Bai, and Hui in Yunnan, and contextualizes these materials in each minority's pre—Communist and Communist history. She is fully conversant and engaged with the large literature, in Chinese and English, on ethnic minorities in China."—Maris Boyd Gillette, Haverford College
