Title: Manchu

Publisher: Alphascript Publishing Jan 2010

Publication Date: 2010

Binding: Taschenbuch

Book Condition: Neu

Description:

Neuware - The Manchu people are a Tungusic people who originated in Manchuria. During their rise in the seventeenth century, with the help of Ming rebels, they conquered the Ming Dynasty and founded the Qing Dynasty, which ruled China until the Xinhai Revolution of 1911, which established a republican government in its place. The Manchu ethnicity has largely been assimilated with the Han Chinese. The Manchu language is almost extinct, now spoken only among a small number of elderly people in remote rural areas of northeastern China and a few scholars; there are around ten thousand speakers of Sibe (Xibo), a Manchu dialect spoken in the Ili region of Xinjiang. In recent years, however, there has been a resurgence of interest in Manchu culture among both ethnic Manchus and Han. The number of Chinese today with some Manchu ancestry is quite large, and the adoption of favorable policies towards ethnic minorities has encouraged some people with mixed Han and Manchu ancestry to re-identify themselves as Manchu. 188 pp. Englisch.
