The Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region is the site of the largest mass repression of an ethnic and/or religious minority in the world today. Researchers estimate that since 2016 one million people have been detained there without trial. In the detention centres individuals are exposed to deeply invasive forms of surveillance and psychological stress, while outside them more than ten million Turkic Muslim minorities are subjected to a network of hi-tech surveillance systems, checkpoints and interpersonal monitoring. Existing reportage and commentary on the crisis tend to address these issues in isolation, but this ground-breaking volume brings them together, exploring the interconnections between the core strands of the Xinjiang emergency in order to generate a more accurate understanding of the mass detentions’ significance for the future of President Xi Jinping’s China.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'An ambitious, in-depth analysis of the mind of Beijing as it hounds its Turkic peoples through a staggering range of unprovoked assaults on their ancient culture, language, traditions and religion. Despite its obvious academic appeal, reams of footnotes and painstaking scholarship, this anthology is also a compilation that makes essential reading for avid China watchers eager to make sense of the Uyghur crisis.'Bitter Winter'A powerful, but anguishing read even for more specialised readers!'Michael Sheringham, Asian Affairs 54.2 - .
