'Patrick Fuliang Shan offers an outstanding study of Heilongjiang as a developing frontier during an important historical era. This unique monograph not only reveals the distinctive features of the northeasternmost frontier but also exposes the historical trajectory of modern China. The book is the crystallization of the author's decade long diligence and must be viewed as a significant contribution to Chinese studies.'

I know of no other book that examines this frontier region in this sort of detail. We can often gain insights into the formation of modern states by studying their margins. Taming China's Wilderness gives a unique perspective on the fall of the Qing Dynasty and the formation of the Republic from the periphery. With an unparalleled command of the relevant archival sources, Patrick Fuliang Shan has shown how this remote, beautiful region has much to say about the process of making the modern Chinese state.' James Carter, Saint Joseph's University, USA 'Patrick Fuliang Shan's new book on the Heilongjiang frontier in the early twentieth century is a wonderful addition to the field of Chinese history and of borderland studies.

Rana Mitter, University of Oxford, UK 'The author's thesis is clear, with his arguments fully supported with evidence. The book is a good read, suitable for scholars as well as students or anyone who is interested in learning about Chinese history. The author's great effort at collecting necessary information is admirable. The exhaustive bibliography is a good proof, which can provide other researchers with good information for further studies. Patrick Fuliang Shan has made a great contribution to our studies in the field of Chinese regional
