Review of James S. Olson, An Ethnohistorical Dictionary of China
By Magnus Fiskesjo, University of Chicago, 15 December 1998. There has long existed a need for comprehensive guides in English to the ethnonyms in China in the present, as well as historically. The book lists a large number of ethnonyms from all of China's ethnic frontiers and sometimes beyond, including even parts of Central Asia, with a number of small ethnic groups that might also be represented within China's current borders. Bibliographical references limited to English. Tt is difficult to recommend this dictionary.
