From the Back Cover:

This book provides an examination of the wealthy migrants who leftEast Asia, notably Hong Kong and Taiwan, and migrated to Canada,Australia, New Zealand, and the United States, in the 1980s and1990s. Through extensive interviewing and access to databases inCanada and Hong Kong over a 15 year period, Ley traces theirmigration career, from pre-migration, to arrival in Canada, tohousing and business experiences in Vancouver, and for many, thecontinuing circular migration across the Pacific.

The book traces the attempts of Canada to establish governancemechanisms to contain these migrants as national citizens, and theimmigrants’ reluctance to be contained. Considering thedifferential responses of men, women, and children within thefamily unit, the book also emphasises the role of distance, place,and space in confounding the transnational objectives of theimmigrants and the globalizing aspirations of the neo-liberalstate.
