Sojourners and Settlers traces the waves of Chinese immigration, the plantation experience, and movement into urban occupations. Although more than half of the migrants returned to China after a few years, those who remained moved successfully into the expanse of the island economy. The author provides a fascinating account of the migrant settlers' transformation from villagers found by ancestral clan and tradition into participants in a mobile Western social order.
