The name given to China's Westernmost province is "Xinjiang" and means "New Frontier."

The region has a long history at the periphery of Chinese Empire, but has only rarely been controlled from the East. Split in two by the Tian Shan Mountain Range it contains two great arid basins, the Tarim and Jungarr.

It borders Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Russia, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India.

Thread of recommendations for students handing in essays in the humanities, specifically history. Written as I mark.

I like seeing it in italics on the opening page, but this may vary. Either way, don't keep the marker guessing.
