Xiang is the winner of the 2008 Anthony Leeds Prize for his book Global Bodyshopping and the 2012 William L. Holland Prize for his article ‘Predatory Princes’. His 2000 Chinese book (published in English as Transcending Boundaries, 2005) was reprinted in 2018 as a contemporary classic, and Self as Method (co-authored with Wu Qi) was ranked the Most Impactful Book 2020.
