Vol 4, No 2 (2009)

Note: Until 2013 journal's title was Journal of the Washington Institute of China Studies.

We open this edition of the Journal with an emperical test of global terrorism which represents an original approach to this issue. This is followed by three Chapters from The Historical Status of China's Tibet. Again, note the title China's Tibet. The authors clearly note their perspective on this sensitive issue. This is followed by an evaluation of the Chinese governments program to encourage Han Chinese to move to the Western province of Xinjiang, the current Uighur population and the Han population that has been encouraged to "go west". The PRC government has been caught in the middle of this volatile situations.
