Chinatown No More: Taiwan Immigrants in Contemporary New York (The Anthropology of Contemporary Issues) by Hsiang-Shui Chen



Series: The Anthropology of Contemporary Issues. Published by: Cornell University Press. In this chapter I trace the immigration of the Chinese to New York City, especially to Chinatown, and then, in the context of recent economic changes in New York, I describe the settlement of new Chinese immigrants in Flushing and Elmhurst. These newcomers are Taiwan and mainlanders who had relocated to Taiwan from mainland China around 1949. Today, some people use Chinese to refer only to those immigrants who have come directly from mainland China, and, for political reasons, some pointedly refer to themselves as Taiwanese.

By focusing on the social and cultural life of post-1965 Taiwan immigrants in Queens, New York, this book shifts Chinese American studies from ethnic enclaves to the diverse multiethnic neighborhoods of Flushing and Elmhurst. Chen's readable ethnography brings together his insights as both participant in and observer of an extraordinarily significant segment of America's changing ethnic landscape. Teachers from advanced high school onward should welcome this excellent introduction to Taiwan immigrants in Flushing, Queens. Academic specialists focusing on ethnic relations, on the complexities of class in the United States, or on the 'overseas Chinese' will also find Chen's study informative and thought provoking. Hill Gates, American Ethnologist.

As Hsiang-shui Chen documents, the political dynamics of these settlements are entirely different from the traditional closed Chinese communities; the immigrants in Queens think of themselves as living in "worldtown," not in a second Chinatown.
