At a time of China’s meteoric rise as a world superpower, there is a resurgence of interest in Sinophobia across academic disciplines, as evidenced by several recent publications, ranging from John Kuo Wei Tchen and Dylan Yeats’s historical survey, Yellow Peril!: An Archive of Anti-Asian Fear (London: Verso, 2014) to Christopher Frayling’s monograph of cultural studies, The Yellow Peril: Dr. Fu Manchu and the Rise of Chinaphobia (London: Thames and Hudson, 2014). In the midst of this boom of Sinophobia studies, Franck Billé’s eponymous book, Sinophobia: Anxiety, Violence, and the Making of Mongolian Iden- tity, comes as a timely intervention and presents a fresh look from a unique perspective.
