Reviews

"Given the changing political and economic relationship between China and Russia in recent years, this collection of research on the Sino-Russian borderlands is especially timely and insightful." - Xiaochen Su, International Journal of Asian Studies, May 2019

Caroline Humphrey (ed.)

Trust and Mistrust in the Economies of the China-Russia Borderlands

The first English-language book to focus on northeast Sino-Russian border economies, Trust and Mistrust in the Economies of the China-Russia Borderlands examines how trans-border economies function in practice. The authors offer an anthropological understanding of trust in juxtaposition to the economy and the state. They argue that the history of suspicion and the securitised character of the Sino-Russian border mean that trust is at a premium. The chapters show how diverse kinds of cross-border business manage to operate, often across great distances, despite widespread mistrust.
