"Vancouver has one of the largest Chinese populations in North America. In The Chinese in Vancouver Wing Chung Ng captures the story of the city's Chinese in their search for identity between 1945 and 1980." "Ng juxtaposes the cultural positions of different generations of Chinese immigrants and their Canadian-born descendants and unveils an ongoing struggle between them over the definition of being Chinese. It is an engrossing account of cultural identity in a context of migration and settlement, where the influence of the native land and the appeal of the host society continue to impinge on the consciousness of the ethnic Chinese."--BOOK JACKET.
