Review

Notable for the consistent high quality of all of the included articles, readers will be rewarded with interesting and accessible studies regardless of where they open the book.... [G]reater than its parts.... [I]t is the unveiling of a new way of thinking about landscapes as dynamic sites of exchange.... [R]eaders become witness to a landscape emerging from its pages that is as multidimensional and dramatic as one might imagine the 'real' Shangrila to be.--E. Elena Songster"Environmental History" (01/01/2016)

[T]he editors of this book have done a fine job assembling recent studies into a comprehensive volume of ethnography and place-based geographical analysis... [F]inely written and informative, in the end this book is greater than the sum of its parts.... It simultaneously is empirical and humanistic--and for that reason illuminating.... [I]t successfully and pleasingly weds the fluttering of geographical imagination to real issues on the ground.--David Zurick"Geographical Review" (01/01/2015)

With the publication of [ "In the Land of the Eastern Queendom" and "Mapping Shangrila"], we see that "Sino-Tibetan Borderland Studies" has in a sense come of age as a distinct area of inquiry.... The Sino-Tibetan frontiers are thus of considerable interest in their own right, while bringing an important range of broad issues facing China into close focus as well.--Matthew T. Kapstein"Pacific Affairs" (01/01/2016)

[A] welcome move away from a predominant view of Shangrila as a product of 'Western' desires and fantasies... [A]n important addition to the growing body of studies on China's borderlands (material and conceptual), which are central to social, political, and economic transformations in contemporary China.--Trine Brox"Journal of Asian Studies" (01/01/2016)
