Summary
"Traces journeys of Cantonese migrants along the West River and its tributaries, one of the world's great river systems, between the late sixteenth and mid-nineteenth centuries, presenting arguments about the relationship between diaspora and empire in an upriver frontier and the role of migration in sustaining families and lineages in what would become a global diaspora"--
