Summary

''''Other Chinas'' is a brilliantly executed study of the politics of ethnography in contemporary China. Litzinger engages theories of power, identity, and modernity in a nuanced and sensitive manner, with strategically deployed ethnographic examples on everything from the writing of minority histories, to the longing for ethnic places, to the staging of minority difference. Chinese socialism, and its aftermath, may never look the same.''--Ted Swedenburg, co-editor of ''Displacement, Diaspora, and Geographies of Identity''
