Stories of the Chinese DiasporaBook - 2005
This book is a rich photographic record of the history of overseas Chinese communities throughout the world. Christine Lim shows how the Chinese came to settle in North America, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Southeast Asia, India, Europe, South America, and all parts of the globe. Lim has assembled oral histories, remembrances, testimonials, and hundreds of rare photographs to form a fascinating yet intimate historical tapestry immense in both breadth and scope. These are the stories of a migration of a people, their hopes, fears, aspirations, and dreams for a better life. Presented in bilingual English/Chinese text.
