This book provides a systemic and detailed monographic study of Chinese outbound migration. It not only breaks down the basic
trends of this migration with respect to destinations and the like, but also analyzes its unique features, which include the
largely middle- and upper-class makeup of emigrants and their investment activities overseas, particularly when it comes to
buying property. The Chinese are the largest foreign buyers of real estate in the US, Canada and Australia. By explaining
this and other special aspects of Chinese emigration and their impact on China and receiving countries, this book provides
a fresh and interesting look at this important phenomenon.
