Chinese Migrants in Russia, Central Asia and Eastern Europe


Add your own review!

Overview

Much of the former Soviet bloc has become a destination for new Chinese migrants. Throughout Russia, Eastern Europe and Central Asia, Chinese migrants are engaged in entrepreneurial activities, primarily as petty merchants of consumer goods in unsteady economies. This book situates these migrants within the broader context of Chinese globalization and China's economic rise. It traces the origins of Chinese migration into the region, as well as the conditions that have allowed migrants to thrive. Furthermore, it discusses the perception that Chinese globalization is purely economic and explores the relationship among petty merchants, labourers and institutional investors. Finally, by examining the movement of China's minorities into Central Asia, this book challenges the ethnic construct of new Chinese migration.

Reviews

The essays collected in this volume are a welcome contribution, especially to the almost non-existing literature on Chinese migration to certain regions of Central Asia and Eastern Europe, and therefore provide a valuable starting point for students of migration and area studies. - Martina Bofulin, University of Ljubljana; Pacific Affairs 2013.
