About This Book

Sinkiang the Chinese province on the borderlands of Russia and China made the world's headlines in 2009 when rioting between Han Chinese and Uighurs exploded in the capital city Urumchi. This political history of Sinkiang 1911-1949 details often-troubled developments including violence and tensions between the Peking-appointed Governors, disunited Muslim groupings, Russian/Turkic external interventions and freewheeling violent dissident forces. A non-specialist reader is helped by the appended "who was who in Republican Sinkiang" and documents relating to the (Sinkiang) East Turkestan Republic of 1933 and 1945, as well as the bibliography and index. Sketch maps and black-and-white photographs.
