Regional military separatism after Deng Siaoping?

  • Peter Kien-hong Yu


Throughout Chinese history, China has been plagued by various forms of military separatism. This article discussed some favorable domestic and foreign factors that could influence the emergence and development of regional military separatism (RMS) after the death of Deng Xiaoping. However, this author argues that, while RMS is a potential force, it could not be practiced in an area larger than a county in size, nor in coastal and frontier areas in the immediate post-Dengist era.
