Summary
"The story underlying this ethnography began with the recent discovery and commercialization of the remnant of an ancient "queendom" on the border between Sichuan and Tibet. Recorded in classical Chinese texts, this legendary matriarchal domain has attracted not only modern-day tourism but also the vigilance of the Chinese state. Tenzin Jinba's research examines the consequences of the development of the "queendom" label for local ethnic, gender, and political identities and for state-society relations." -- Cover.
