Down a Narrow Road: Identity and Masculinity in a Uyghur Community in Xinjiang China by Jay Dautcher

An ethnography of the Uighur community in Yining, this book explores topics from family life to market trading, from informal socialising to forms of religious devotion. It focuses in particular on the formation of identity & the role of masculinity in this process.

 

This sounds… interesting? The author studied masculinity in Ghulja? What?
