This book is a unique anthology that acquaints English-speaking readers with the rich and captivating folk stories of the Dungans, Sinophone Muslims who fled northwest China for Russian Central Asia after the failure of the Dungan Revolt (1862–1877) under the Qing dynasty. The most comprehensive collection of Dungan folk narratives, available now in English for the first time, this volume features translations of oral narratives collected in the former Soviet Central Asian republics of Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan in the twentieth century. The Dungan folk narrative tradition is a vibrant and fascinating tapestry of Chinese, Islamic, and various Central Asian cultural elements.
