About this title
The Chinese Diaspora: Selected Essays Volumes I and II comprise a selection of papers presented at Luodi-shenggen: An International Conference on Chinese Overseas, which was organized by the Ethnic Studies Department, University of California at Berkeley, and held in San Francisco. This landmark conference brought together, for the first time since the end of the Cold War, scholars from all the six continents.
This selection of papers constitutes a quarter of the papers presented and reflects the focus, scope and contents of the conference and the state of scholarship. The papers cover two broad areas: first, transnational issues and concerns of Chinese overseas and second, regional studies, including those of lesser known regions.
Together, The Chinese Diaspora: Selected Essays Volumes I and II should clearly define the emerging field of overseas Chinese studies and provide scholars around the world with the first truly comprehensive treatment of the Chinese diaspora.About the Author:
