Encyclopaedia of the Peoples of China

Encyclopaedia of the Peoples of China offers a uniquely rich and informed insight into a neglected but enormously significant subject for the modern world.

Overview:

Encyclopedia of the Peoples of China offers a rich and well-researched insight into the profoundly important, but often neglected, subject of the development of a modern nationalist consciousness in China. This vital study on national cultural history is enriched with a magnificent range of illustrations. (English rights sold.) The book looks at each of the 56 official peoples of China and provides an encyclopaedic coverage in terms of:

• the people and their homelands

• their origins, history and language

• their family life and social organizations

• their livelihoods and material culture, such as food, clothing and homes

• their religious beliefs and cultural inheritance

• the achievements of their notable people

• the cultural sites and historical monuments of their communities
