Dear Cenasia-ens,

Does anyone have information on or about the Dungan people of Uzbekistan? Or resources in English to recommend? A friend of mine visited Uzbekistan last year, met some Dungan and now wants to learn more about them. He lives in the Houston area and can avail himself of the univerity libraries there.

One substantial work comes to mind (not on Ozbekistan, but most Dungans are actually in Qirghizstan and Qazaqstan -- and of course Western China):

Dyer, Svetlana Rimsky-Korsakoff Soviet Dungan kolkhozes in the Kirgiz SSR and the Kazakh SSR. Canberra 1979.

Dru Gladney (East-West Center, Hawaii) has written much on Hui/Dungan/Muslim Chinese (mainly in China), and he or his works might direct you to other useful sources.

Is "Dungan" a Russian/Central Asian corruption of "Dunhuang"?

If the answer to James Critchlow's question is yes, your friend may be interested in the Web page for the International Dunhuang Project:
