Review quote

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 * 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 * 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 *
