Beyond the Pass: Economy, Ethnicity, and Empire in Qing Central Asia, 1759-1864

Front Cover
Stanford University Press, Jun 1, 1998 - History - 353 pages
Beyond the Pass examines the fiscal and ethnic policies that underlay Qing imperial control over Xinjiang, a Central Asian region that now comprises the westernmost sixth of the People's Republic of China. By focusing on a region of the Qing empire beyond the borders of China proper, and by treating the empire not as a Chinese dynasty but in its broader context as an Inner Asian political entity, this innovative study fills a gap in Western-language historiography of late imperial China.
