Based on original ethnographic material collected in an upper-middle class Chinese American community, this book aims at exploring the complicated identity production process within the community in relation to the rapidly changing global and local contexts. The book is expected to expand the scope of existing literature on identity production among immigrants of color in both empirical and methodological terms.
Liang Du is assistant professor in the School of Education at Beijing Normal University.
