The Transnational History of a Chinese Family: Immigrant Letters, Family Business, and Reverse Migration Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Based on his analysis of over 3000 family letters and other primary sources, including recently released immigration files from the National Archives and Records Administration, Liu (ethnic and women's studies, California State Polytechnic U.) recounts the transnational history of a Chinese family from the late 19th century to the 1970s. This family history demonstrates that for many Chinese immigrant families, migration is not a break from the past, but rather the beginning of a new life incorporating dual national boundaries.
