This book addresses the historical and contemporary involvement of Chinese Americans from diverse walks of life in U.S.-China relations. The contributors present new evidence and fresh perspectives on familiar and unfamiliar national and transnational networks - including families, businesspersons, community newspapers, students, lobbyists, philanthropists, and scientists - and consider the likely future impact of such contacts on the most important bilateral relationship at the start of the new millennium. The volume makes a multidisciplinary contribution to understanding the extensive and vital roles and promise of Chinese Americans at this critical juncture in U.S.-China relations, and to revealing the importance of migrants as actors in contemporary global politics. The assessments shared by the contributors suggest that the nature and scope of the Chinese American involvement, particularly in global civil society networks, increasingly will determine the outcome of state-to-state relations between the United States and the PRC.

Review:

"This book contains thirteen extremely valuable essays on the roles played by Chinese Americans as 'global players.' The editors and contributors stress that as individuals and as members of family, professional, and non-profit organizations, Chinese Americans have been patiently and effectively building bridges across the Pacific. By their example, they have shown that formal state-level affairs constitute only one aspect of U.S.-Chinese relations, and that non-governmental connections and exchanges have served to provide an element of stability in order to complement, and sometimes even rectify, the often tumultuous official relationship between Beijing and Washington. If the two nations are to succeed in developing a more stable and constructive relationship, the efforts of Chinese Americans-and their collaborators both in China and in the United States will prove of critical importance. In this sense, the significance of these essays transcends the binational relationship and points to the crucial roles that are being played by individuals of cross-national background and competence in coping with many grave issues facing the world today." - Akira Iriye, Harvard University
