Lawrence ; Michael F. Martin, 2013.
'China has four levels of formal administration under the central
government. The first level is officially made up of 34
provincial-level governments. This includes 23 provinces; five
geographic entities that China calls “autonomous
regions,” which have large ethnic minority populations
(Guangxi, Inner Mongolia, Tibet, and Xinjiang); four municipalities
that report directly to the central government (Beijing, Chongqing,
Shanghai, and Tianjin); and the two special administrative regions
of Hong Kong and Macau. The PRC’s count of 23 provinces
includes Taiwan, the island of 23 million people that the PRC does
not control, but over which it claims sovereignty.'
