Synopsis

Taking an "actor-oriented" approach which portrays the new Chinese immigrants as problem solvers and decision makers who shape their own destinies, this book focuses on how the new Chinese immigrants use their ethnic and personal resources to make economic adaptations in their new country. The book discusses the ways in which the new Chinese immigrants have responded to the economic challenges of today's modern world by concentrating on obtaining jobs in the established ethnic niche composed of typical Chinese businesses, by obtaining employment within the white establishment, and by pursuing a global strategy, such as seeking employment or starting a business abroad. Part of the New Immigrants Series, edited by Nancy Foner. Focusing on the massive wave of immigration currently sweeping across America, this ground breaking series includes coverage of five new immigrant groups for 1998: the Hmong in Wisconsin, Brazilians and Koreans in New York City, Haitians in Miami, and Chinese in San Francisco. This series fills the gap in knowledge relating to today's immigrants, how these groups are attempting to redefine their cultures while here, and their contribution to a new and changing America.
