    Palgrave Macmillan 2007; US$ 35.00

    This study points up the complex interplay of ethnic and national identities in the lives of Chinese in Britain, arguing that transnational studies reinforce essentialist conceptions of identity and cultural authenticity in diasporic communities, and thus frustrate the promotion of ethnic co-existence and social cohesion in multi-ethnic societies. more...

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 160.00

    This study reviews developments in the ethnic and national identity of the descendants of migrants, taking ethnic Chinese as a case study.

This question is asked in view of the growing... more...

    Palgrave Macmillan UK 2016; US$ 169.59
