Sept. 21, 2009 4 Study questions on Gladney 57-132 1. List all of the reasons you can think of why states are often wary of religious institutions and religious practices. 2. On p. 65 a Hui state cadre discussed a contradiction between his identity as an official of the state and his Muslim identity: “I believe in Marxism in my head, but I believe in Islam in my heart.” Is he kidding himself—compartmentalizing an obvious contradiction? Describe what you think is the meaning behind this statement. Other examples you can offer? 3. Gladney says that the Chinese state earlier established campaigns that discouraged “local nationality chauvinism” and promoted “nationality unity” (p. 67). Can you think of any equivalent pronouncements made by our government or other governments? 4. Gladney says that Hui have Qur’anic names and Chinese names. Do you know of any similar examples? 5. Gladney speaks of the “cultural organization” of Hui identity. What does this mean?
