Reviews

"As a whole, the volume provides an intelligent, clearly-written, and consistently impressive account of the fascinating case of Hakka ethnicity and identity both inside and outside of China."—Charles Stafford, Anthropos

"The book is a path-breaker in the newly emergent field of Hakkaology and hence is a must for China scholars and for those in the field of ethnic and diaspora studies."—Yuen-fong Woon, The China Journal

"Guest People is a thoughtful work of significant intellectual and analytical merit. In a world of rising ethnicities and ethnic conflicts, this timely study should be read by many."—Jessie G. Lutz, The Journal of Asian Studies
