Xinjiang: Beyond Race, Religion and Place of Origin is a contemporary documentary literature work, and is a sequel to I Am from Xinjiang on the Silk Road, a bestseller of China in 2015. This book is an expanded reproduction of the TV documentary I Am from Xinjiang on the Silk Road, which tells 23 true stories of the lives and dreams of average people from Xinjiang, including some prestigious people like Chen Jianbin, Li Yapeng, Tong Liya, et al. who live and work in all parts of China, With the 'Chinese dream of Xinjiangers' as the subject matter, the author makes it possible for readers to reconstruct their image of Xinjiangers, rethink interpersonal relationships and develop a true image of themselves. Moreover, the author expects the pioneering spirit of the protagonists to build into a positive force of great momentum that inspires people and keeps them away from grievances and backsliding. With a simple warmth of its own, the book is not in for profound preaching, but is bent on representing average Chinese nationals who work hard for the sake of their loved ones and fight for a better life as they cling to the dreams that they hold so dear. Where do they or we come from? We come from Xinjiang and all other parts of China. We are a community of shared destiny and of our time.
