    Thomas Mullaney - Coming to Terms with the Nation: Ethnic Classification in Modern China
    Published: 2010-11-04 | ISBN: 0520262786, 0520272749 | PDF | 256 pages | 34.42 MB

    China is a vast nation composed of hundreds of distinct ethnic communities, each with its own language, history, and culture. Today the government of China recognizes just 56 ethnic nationalities, or minzu, as groups entitled to representation. This controversial new book recounts the history of the most sweeping attempt to sort and categorize the nation's enormous population: the 1954 Ethnic Classification project (minzu shibie). Thomas S. Mullaney draws on recently declassified material and extensive oral histories to describe how the communist government, in power less than a decade, launched this process in ethnically diverse Yunnan. Mullaney shows how the government drew on Republican-era scholarship for conceptual and methodological inspiration as it developed a strategy for identifying minzu and how non-Party-member Chinese ethnologists produced a scientific survey that would become the basis for a policy on nationalities.
