From the Publisher"Extraordinary history is made by ordinary people, as this volume by Shanghai native Djao subtly demonstrates. . . . Such documentary-based representation leaves a space for readers to experience, feel, imagine, and draw their own conclusions about a distinguished cultural group."
—Library Journal "One does not need to be Chinese to enjoy Being Chinese. Indeed, the view given to non-Chinese by this masterful work is priceless and unprecedented." —New York Resident "Fresh and first-hand information about the everyday life of these migrants and their descendants . . . Previous studies have always focused on the married bachelor and sojourner phenomena among the Chinese emigrant, especially among those in North America, but this book adds more details about such tragedies." —National Journal
