1. Migration, Indigenization and Interaction: Chinese Overseas and Globalization, edited by Leo Suryadinata. Singapore: World Scientific Publishing Co. Pte Ltd., 2011, pp. 325

The twelve chapters in this volume are selected from the papers submitted to the ISSCO VII International conference on ˇ§Migration, Indigenization and Exchange: Chinese Overseas from Global Perspectives,ˇ¨ jointly organized by the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, Nanyang Technological University (HSS-NTU) and the International Society for the Study of Chinese Overseas (ISSCO) on May 7-9, 2010, held in Singapore.

The chapters in this book address various issues related to Chinese migration, indigenization and exchange with special reference to the era of globalization. As the waves of Chinese migration started in the last century, the emphasis, not surprisingly, is placed on the ˇ§migrant statesˇ¨ rather than ˇ§indigenous states.ˇ¨ Nevertheless, many chapters are also concerned with issues of ˇ§settling downˇ¨ and ˇ§becoming part of the local scenes.ˇ¨ However, the settling/integrating process has been interrupted by a globalizing world, new Chinese migration and the rise of China at the end of 20th century.
