Product description

Review


Dikötter (Univ. of Hong Kong) has updated his classic 1994 work to address ongoing and new obsessions with race in the People's Republic of China since the 1980s. His original argument--that race is a modern concept in China--is still the core of the book, but this revision is an important
contribution to wider scholarship on race, since the concept continues to inform China's domestic and foreign policy and is alive and well in other parts of the world. -- M. C. Brose, University of Wyoming, CHOICE


In his brilliant book Dikötter explains how traditional notions about culturally inferior barbarians intermingled with Western forms of scientific racism to form a distinctively Chinese racial consciousness in the 20th century. -- Forbes Magazine
