Aims to contest conventional ways of presenting Han immigrants in minority areas as a homogenous group of colonisers with shared identification, equal status and access to power. This book demonstrates that the category of ‘Han immigrants’ is fragmented in terms of generation, ethnic identification, migration history, class and economic activity.
