520    This study addresses how China's policy response to 
       problems in Xinjiang is interpreted and implemented by 
       officials, who are both governing agents and governed 
       subjects by interviewing Chinese officials working in both
       Central government and Local governments.|bThe Xinjiang 
       Uygur Autonomous Region is one of China's most 
       strategically important, resource-rich and largest regions
       but also one of the country's most troublesome, the region
       now being synonymous with ethnic conflict and nationalist 
       movements. This detailed and compelling study sets out to 
       explore how the Chinese government has governed Xinjiang 
       in light of growing tensions in the region exploring 
       initiatives such as the partner assistance programme to 
       understand the extent to which attempts to reverse the 
       deteriorating situation have been effective. Furthermore, 
       this study also provides compelling insights into how 
       policies vary in different regions, focusing in particular
       on the role played by officials in interpreting and 
       implementing these policies within their specific locale. 
       It shows that Communist Party strategy and policy become 
       messy when introduced at a micro-level as local 
       governments interpret how these policies should work 
       within their particular region. As such, this text is 
       invaluable to students and scholars of policy-making and 
       implementation in China 
520 1  Shaoying Zhang and Derek McGhee should be commended for 
       providing an innovative and rigorous analysis of the 
       relationship between state policy and ethnic conflict in 
       Xinjiang. In particular, their focus on the ways in which 
       officials in Xinjiang selectively interpret and implement 
       central government policy illuminates the importance of 
       factoring in local agents of state power in analyses of 
       contemporary Chinese governance - Dr Michael Clarke,
