Abstract:

Textbooks and general histories of modern China agree that the so-called Miao rebellion constituted one of the major rebellions of the nineteenth century. It lasted for twenty years, caused devastation of such severity that its effects were still obvious to travelers in Guizhou province decades later, and, by one account, resulted in the deaths of more than four million people. In an impressive presentation of material drawn from local histories, private writings, and official documents, Jenks argues that the Qing government sought to lay the blame for the turmoil squarely on an ethnic minority it regarded as obstreperous and inferior. As well as altering perceptions of the rebellion, Insurgency and Social Disorder in Guizhou enhances our understanding of the causes of the rebellion and its place in the crises that beset mid-nineteenth-century China. It contributes to the sociology of rebellion and peasant movements and is a valuable supplement to current anthropological work on Chinese minorities. Its treatment of Qing attitudes toward the Miao has implications for minority policies in the Peoples Republic of China today.
