China : Muslims, Minorities, and Other Subaltern Subjects
Book by Dru C. Gladney
Western scholars have tended to accept the Chinese representation of non-Han groups as
marginalized minorities. Dru C. Gladney challenges this simplistic view, arguing instead
that the very oppositions of majority and minority, primitive and modern, are historically
constructed and are belied by examination of such disenfranchised groups as Muslims,
minorities, or gendered others.
Gladney locates China and Chinese culture not in some unchanging, essential
"Chinese-ness," but in the context of historical and contemporary multicultural
complexity. He investigates how this complexity plays out among a variety of places and
groups, examining representations of minorities and majorities in art, movies, and theme
parks; the invention of folklore and creation myths; the role of pilgrimages in
constructing local identities; and the impact of globalization and economic reforms on
non-Han groups such as the Muslim Hui.
