Chinese Diasporas : A Social History of Global Migration, Hardback Book

Chinese Diasporas : A Social History of Global Migration Hardback

Part of the New Approaches to Asian History series



Chinese Diasporas provides a concise and compelling new history of internal and external Chinese migration from the sixteenth century to the present day.

Steven B. Miles places Chinese migrants and their families at the center of his narrative through a series of engaging case studies taking readers from the heart of Ming China to the global property markets of the twenty-first century.

The focus on individual migrants and their descendants reveals the ways in which the 'Chinese diaspora' has consisted of distinct paths of migration from specific emigrant communities to targeted destinations both within China and abroad.

This is essential reading for those interested in the history of the Chinese diaspora and the overseas Chinese, and for those interested in the role of migration in the making of the modern world.
