Ethnic Conflict and Protest in Tibet and Xinjiang: Unrest in China's West by Ben Hillman

Despite a decade of rapid economic development, rising living standards, and large-scale improvements in infrastructure and services, China??s western borderlands have experienced a wave of ethnic unrest not seen since the 1950s. Through on-the-ground interviews and first-hand observations, the international experts in this volume create an invaluable record of the conflicts and protests as they have unfolded—the most extensive chronicle of events to date. The authors examine the factors driving the unrest in Tibet and Xinjiang and the political strategies used to suppress them. They also explain why certain areas have seen a higher concentration of ethnic-based violence than others. For anyone struggling to understand the origins of unrest in contemporary Tibet and Xinjiang, this anthology is essential reading.
