Description
Summary:The 15 documents in this collection cover the time period from 1100-2000 AD. A general handbook of Inner Mongolia geography, history, and culture was published by the Far Eastern and Russian Institute (1956). The earliest works in the collection are by the Catholic priest Father Kler who lived among the Ordos Mongolians in the 1920s and 30s. He wrote articles on hunting practices (1941); sickness, death, and burials (1936) and birth, infancy, and childhood (1938). Chang (1933) provides an economic assessment and prognosis of Mongolia in the 1930s. Owen Lattimore (1934) wrote a political ecology of the region, prior to the Japanese occupation in 1932. Two translated Japanese studies examine health and living conditions (Hikage 1938), and housing, clothing and diet (Izumi 1939). Cammann reports on his 1945 travels in the Ordos and Gobi desserts and Houtai plain. Three works examine the twentieth-century Han colonization of the region (Cressy 1932; Lattimore 1932; Pasternak and Salaff 1993). Sneath (2000) examines the history of Chinese government policies imposed on Mongolian pastoral society from the pre-Chinese Revolutionary period up to the post-Mao period. Jankowiak (1993) writes an engaging urban ethnography of Huhhot and Bulag (2002) examines how the contradictions and tensions of vying Chinese and Mongolian nationalisms play out in socialist Inner Mongolia.
