Multilingualism in the Chinese diaspora worldwide transnational connections and local social realities: Book Review

    Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationBook/Film/Article review

    Abstract

    This book is an ambitious attempt to describe and analyse multilingualism in the global Chinese diaspora. It features 17 chapters contributed by established and emerging scholars who adopt a wide range of conceptual and methodological approaches. It also covers Chinese communities in many geographical areas, including some which are under-rep- resented in the existing literature. In this sense, it makes a worthy contribution to our under- standing of the global Chinese diaspora, but the variation in the quality of the individual chapters and some editorial issues detract from this achievement.
