Chinese Migration Networks into the Americas

(p.13) 1 From Global to Local
Making the Chinese Mexican
Stanford University Press

This chapter traces the reliance on diasporic networks and local structures that linked Chinese migrants from imperial worlds to national worlds. Existing networks tied Chinese migrants to each other through kinship, friendship, and membership in social or lineage associations. Once in place, these networks reproduced or were transformed in order to facilitate channels of interconnectivity so that people, commodities, and ideas circulated almost seamlessly and continuously from homeland to adopted country.

Keywords:   diasporic networks, Chinese migrants, kinship, friendship, social associations
