Book Description

The most comprehensive glossary to date of Hui Muslim terms and the first to fully match the Chinese term (stated in Chinese script and pinyin) to its Arabic or Persian counterpart (stated in Arabic script with Latin transcription).


'Students of Islam in China will be grateful to Jianping Wang for this labour of love which will make reading the sources so much easier and should help to introduce more researchers to this fascinating subject of study where the Chinese and Islamic worlds overlap.' - Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies

'Wang Jianping’s Glossary of Chinese Islamic Terms deserves to be mentioned as a useful reference work...Wang brings together both scholarly jargon and vernacular vocabulary used by Chinese-speaking Muslims, providing when possible etymology, including Arabic, Persian, and Turkic roots. As such, his glossary is of use to both the historian and the ethnographer, and should help propel further work in the overall field.' - Religious Studies Review (Vol. 37, Issue 4, December 2011)
