This interdisciplinary volume examines a specific aspect of the Chinese diaspora, which revolves around the cultivation of quaoixchang ties, or links with the home town, as revealed through extensive case studies of the way in which entrepreneurs of Chinese descent from Taiwan, Hong Kong and Southeast Asia brought their business ventures into South China after the implementation of the open-door policy in the late 1970s.
