If you’d like to read the full review you can access it through the Review of Religion and Chinese Society.
Here is a preview:
Kristian Petersen’s new book, Interpreting Islam in China, is a masterful study of Sinophone Muslims in late imperial China. …It will no doubt join the groundbreaking volumes of Zvi Ben-Dor, Jonathan Lipman, Ma Tong, Wang Jianping, and many others in bringing to light voices from an important historical corner of the Islamic world.
Very honored to be named along side these wonderful scholars.
