這是一本新清史的經典之作,開創了清帝國邊疆研究的先河。清帝國是中國歷史上疆域最遼闊的國家,本書聚焦於十九世紀的嘉峪關,以及嘉峪關西邊更廣袤的新征服之地─「新疆」,這塊土地佔了今日中國國土面積的六分之一。通過考察清政府在新疆實行的財政和民族政策,尤其是其對穆斯林人口最多的南疆的商業活動以及不同民族出身的商人所採取的管理和控制,作者試圖回答一個更深遠的問題,即清帝國如何向中國民族國家過渡這一歷史難題。 對任何從事新疆歷史研究或是對新疆歷史感興趣的人而言,米華健基於清廷宮中檔案撰就的《嘉峪關外》是必讀的最重要著述之一。此書不僅改變了西方世界長期缺乏清代新疆歷史研究專著的情形,而且也是迄今為止在該領域內非常有價值的一部專著。 ─馬大正研究員,中國社會科學院中國邊疆研究所 這是一部關於新疆的傑出研究,它通過族群和經濟的視角,紮實地呈現了清帝國如何在這片新的疆土上建立並維持統治。從沒有哪個王朝能夠像清朝這樣將新疆併入其疆域並進行深度有效的經略,米華健的書則對清朝這一曠古未有的功績作了最全面的展示。我衷心將此書推薦給所有對中國邊疆史感興趣的讀者。 ─濮德培(Peter C. Perdue)教授,美國耶魯大學歷史系 此書在問世之際就允稱美國漢學界對清代新疆歷史長途越度關津的鑿空之作,迄今的流播更彰顯出鐵板銅琵高唱大江東去的健銳。作為這本書寫作的見證者、中譯本的審校者以及相關領域研究的同道,我非常樂見中文版的問世。 ─張世明教授,中國人民大學法學院

The survey was a search for maps, written text or description, and aerial photographs that would be useful in quantitatively describing the physical attributes of the environment found in Thailand that affect ground mobility. These physical attributes include surface geometry, soils, vegetation, hydrologic geometry, and climate. Sections corresponding to the physical attributes and a general section were established for filing and cross-filing references according to their data content. Each section was further subdivided into two subsections, text and map references. A list of 1613 unclassified references was compiled, and the contents of each reference were evaluated according to the following categories: (a) quantitative data, (b) qualitative data, (c) useful data absent, (d) gazetteers, bibliographies, etc., and (e) not reviewed. Of these references, 1012 were reviewed and annotated, 484 were cross-filed, and 117 were not reviewed. Geographic index maps were prepared to show specific areas of Thailand described in the annotated references when these areas were less than the entire country. Each bibliographic entry is identified by a series of symbols indicating (a) section and reference number, (b) subsection (text, maps, or both), (c) evaluation category, and (d) if and where cross-filed.
