This excellent work examines the international communities of ethnic Chinese who are frequently known collectively as the "Overseas Chinese". . . . Notable for fresh, thorough, and vibrant essays. The articles are well documented and suitable to support academic research, but their content and prose are such that this book will be valuable to anyone interested in the Overseas Chinese or in international migration. It will likely become a classic of Chinese migration and population studies. * CHOICE *
This book provides an excellent overview by comprehensively discussing the historical and contemporary Chinese diasporas across the globe. The book makes an important and timely contribution to the study of Chinese diasporas from a geographical perspective. It is a valuable reference for social scientists, a potential course textbook, and a good resource for anyone interested in globalization, transnationalism, and the Chinese diaspora. * Professional Geographer *
[A] thoroughly useful collection, a comprehensive and cohesive book. -- David Lay * The Canadian Geographer *
This welcome collection of essays puts the focus in migration where it naturally lies-on geography. The editors argue persuasively that geography has been given short shrift in discussions of migration, even though this field of knowledge is at the heart of migration. * Pacific Affairs *
Offers an extensive and thought-provoking exploration of the Chinese diaspora and of what it is to be 'Chinese' across a wide range of situations and locations. * The China Journal *
This is an important and valuable reference volume. There is no book that covers the Chinese diaspora as comprehensively as this one. -- Yue-man Yeung, Chinese University of Hong Kong
A must-read for people who are interested in the current debates on immigration and transnationalism....The book not only provides a wealth of information on the Chinese diasporic population around the world but also forcefully interjects a geographical perspective into the center of the theoretical discussion of transnationalism. -- Yu Zhou * The Geographical Review *
This book contributes to research on Chinese who are living outside China....[The] authors...contribute meaty and thoughtful essays that touch on the varied nature of receiving areas....The amply demonstrated multiplicity of experience does, indeed, produce 'tangled geographies,' providing intriguing material for continued examinations well fuelled by the work of this volume's authors. -- Susan M. Walcott * Economic Geography *
