Summary
China borders 14 countries, and its outer lands are home to many of its 55 officially recognized ethnic minorities. Numbering around 100 million, these people often face discrimination from the government and have fewer opportunities than the Han Chinese majority. British journalist David Eimer, who lived and worked in China for years, wanted to give a voice to some of these overlooked people, so he traveled around China's edges, visiting with them and even crossing borders to see how their ethnic brothers fared in other countries. Reporting from the Islamic area of Xinjiang province, the forbidden zone of Tibet, and other places like them, Eimer provides a unique view of an unfamiliar China in this fast-paced account. -- Description by Dawn Towery
