I B Tauris has commissioned a book on the current unrest in China’s Xinjiang region by journalist Nick Holdstock. China's Forgotten People will tell the in-depth story of the region blamed for a series of bombing and knife-attacks in China.
Editor Tomasz Hoskins said: “This is a story which has not yet been told, about repression, censorship and Islamic radicalisation in Modern China which sadly looks set to become a permanent fixture in the news over the coming years.”
Publishing director Iradj Bagherzade commented: “Nick is the ideal author for this subject. He’s lived in Xinjiang for a number of years and knows the place intimately. He’s not just a reporter parachuted in from Beijing.”
China’s Forgotten People will be published in early 2015.
This title will be the latest addition to I B Tauris’ growing list on modern China. It is publishing The New Emperors: Power and the Princelings in China by Kerry Brown next month, as well as two other new titles by journalists next year: Little Emperors and Material Girls: Sex and Youth in Modern China by Jemimah Steinfeld and Let One Hundred Voices Speak: How the Internet is Transforming China and Changing Everything by Liz Carter.
