Migration, Indigenization, and Interaction
Chinese Overseas and GlobalizationeBook - 2011
The twelve chapters included in this book address various issues related to Chinese migration, indigenization and exchange with special reference to the era of globalization. As the waves of Chinese migration started in the last century, the emphasis, not surprisingly, is placed on the "migrant states" rather than "indigenous states". Nevertheless, many chapters are also concerned with issues of "settling down" and "becoming part of the local scenes". However, the settling/integrating process has been interrupted by a globalizing world, new Chinese migration and the rise of China at the end of 20th century.
