Reviews

Lucid and up-to-date [Nick Holdstock] makes the case for a deeper understanding of Xinjiang at the moment, a combination of official defensiveness in China and politicisation of agendas outside means that dialogue on this crucial issue barely exists. It is to be hoped that Nick Holdstock s book and others like it will stimulate precisely this sort of dialogue. Without it, a real, and lasting, tragedy is threatened: for the people of Xinjiang and of China, but also those of the region and the wider world. - Kerry Brown, OpenDemocracy; 'Refreshingly, this is a work of scepticism rather than sensationalism...the author's experience in the region and his incorporation of the latest scholarship make this the most reliable journalistic account of Xinjiang published in the past few decades. For the policy0maker of the general reader seeking an overview of what is known about Uyghur resistance to Chinese rule, this is a much-needed resource.' - Rian Thum, Times Literary Supplement
