Summary "This book offers a major sociological analysis of Hui Muslims in contemporary China, using both qualitative and quantitative data derived from fieldwork in Lanzhou between March 2001 and July 2004. It looks at the contrast between the urban life of the Han people, the ethnic majority in the city of Lanzhou, and the Hui people, the largest ethnic minority in the city, to assess the link between minority ethnicity and traditional behavior in urban sociology and research on ethnic groups of China."--BOOK JACKET.
