Books about the Maonan


We don't know any monograph about the Maonan people in western languages; however the reader without knowledge of Chinese can find some basic information in books that are published every some years in China dealing with the 55 officially recognized minorities, as Ma Yin´s Chinese minorities, Ethnic Groups in China, or China's Minority Nationalities.

Some western style encyclopedias have also some pages about the Maonan, as:

Olson, James S.- An Ethnohistorical Dictionary of China (Greenwood Press, 1998), have one page about the Maonan.

Hattaway, Paul.- Operation China.

The Bridal Boat has a chapter dealing with the Marriage of the Maonan.

In Spanish, Yan Ruxian's "Matrimonio y familia de las etnias minoritarias de China" (Marriage and Family of China National Minorities), Foreign Languages Press, 1991, include a chapter written by Wang Zhaowu about the marriage of the Maonan.
