Riassunto: The Chinese are New Zealand's largest non-European and non-Polynesian ethnic group, with a history in this country dating back to the mid-1850s. Through 12 essays, this study traces the history of a group who have been the victims of racial stereotyping, from the 19th century goldrush to the present day. A variety of contributors offer different perspectives, including historical, legal and archeological. The development of the Chinese community, the formation of their identity as a visible minority, their settlement and adaption issues, and their transnational behaviour are all explored here. As its subject is the most conspicuous group of "essential outsiders", owing to their number as well as their perceived economic privilege, this study also provides an in-depth examination of New Zealand's race relations and national identity.
