The Chinese diaspora of at least 60 million has been spreading throughout the globe for centuries. Their ethnic cohesion gives the community identity and economic power, even though China is no longer their home. Whereas the diaspora were often on the political periphery in the past, in the last hundred years ethnic Chinese participation in politics in their new homes has become more common. In this book the author examines what promotes this new political activism in three different countries and what this activity seeks to achieve. Good Paperback. First Edition. 231 pages including a bibliography, index, figures, tables and maps.
