This chapter offers a general account of Sibe history and society. It suggests that certain nationalist themes are apparent in the writing of Sibe history in contemporary China, notably a rhetoric of continuity with antiquity and a need to establish a unique ethnic identity. The chapter discusses the origins of the Sibe and the influence of the garrison culture. It describes the conditions of the Sibe under the Manchu, during the Republican period, and under the People's Republic.

Keywords:   Sibe, history, society, China, ethnic identity, garrison culture, Manchu, Republic period, People's Republic
