"Of great moment to China and the U.S., this dialogue on social inequality and 'affirmative action' in education offers stimulating insights into critical matters, including the imperatives of state-formation and nation-building, majority-minority relations, and the consequences of transnationalism." - Gary Y. Okihiro, Professor of International and Public Affairs, Columbia University; Author of Island World: A History of Hawai'i and the United States and Pineapple Culture: A History of the Tropical and Temperate Zones
"This book is a welcome contribution to an underdeveloped field in Chinese studies. It will be attractive to several audiences: those interested in China's national minorities; in Chinese educational policies with respect to minorities, and in cross national comparison of affirmative action in China and the United States. The authors come both from the US and from China. Chapters on specific cases contain rich and vivid detail of the dilemmas involved in providing equal educational opportunities to Chinese minorities." - Thomas P. Bernstein, Professor emeritus, Columbia University; Author of Up to the Mountains and Down to the Villages: The Transfer of Youth from Urban to Rural China
