Beyond the Pass examines the fiscal and ethnic policies that underlay Qing imperial control over Xinjiang, a Central Asian region that now comprises the westernmost sixth of the People's Republic of China. By focusing on a region of the Qing empire beyond the borders of China proper, and by treating the empire not as a Chinese dynasty but in its broader context as an Inner Asian political entity, this innovative study fills a gap in Western-language historiography of late imperial China.

It is not a review but a factual question to the author or publisher. The bibliography of this book mentioned a article by J. Dowson on the travel route of Khwajah Ahmud Shah Nukshbundee Syud published in the Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society of Great Britain and Ireland No.12 (1850): 372-85. How this particular article published in 1850 whereas Khwajah Ahmud Shah Nukshbundee Syud himself started his journey in 1852 for Central Asia?
