Dear Colleagues,

We are very pleased to announce the publication of MARGINALIZATION IN

Like every major society in the 21st century, China struggles to find
national unity in the midst of ethnic, religious, and regional
differences. This book offers a refreshing perspective on the politics
of marginalization and debunks popular misconceptions about China’s
highly centralized state and seemingly homogeneous society. Drawing on
archival research and fieldwork, this work presents in-depth case
studies of gender, ethnic, and religious minority formation, and
argues that the struggles of minorities are at the forefront of an
emerging Chinese civil society. Some of the chapters on Chinese
Christian movements may be of interest to members of this discussion
