In this final 12th episode we'll look at Xinjiang from 1885 to 1949.  More unrest, well intentions gone wrong, Soviet subterfuge and two East Turkestan Republics. 

And after all the events that happened going back to Qianlong, Xinjiang finally goes out with a whimper in 1949 with the Communist PLA takeover.  We'll look at the rogue's gallery of Xinjiang governors/warlords who ran the place from 1912 to 1949.

I hope you enjoyed this twelve-part series. If you want to learn more you're in luck. The number of books (including serious academic works), scholarly papers, web resources, and videos that are out there, should be able to satisfy you to no end.
