About this title

Synopsis:

In Chinese Activism of a Different Kind, Jia Gao examines the social behavior and patterns of actions of 45,000 or so Chinese students as they fought to obtain the right to stay permanently in Australia after the June 4 'Tiananmen Square' incident of 1989.
In a time of relative Internet infancy their response to the shifting stances of the Australian government saw them build networks, make use of media and develop a range of strategies. In achieving success this diverse group of students became the largest intake of onshore asylum seekers in the history of Australian immigration. Through their testimonies Jia Gao provides a fascinating addition to our knowledge of Chinese activism and to the history of Chinese migration.

Review:

'..his work contains valuable contributions, such as Gao's analysis of student lobbyists' adoption of "human rights" discourses, and a comparison with Chinese student campaigns in the US. Summing Up: Recommended. Best suited for specialized libraries with strong collections on student activism or Chinese diaspora studies. -- P. B. Guingona, University at Buffalo, CHOICEMarch 51: 07 (2014)
