About this title


Families are the cornerstone of Chinese society, whether in mainland China, in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macao, Singapore, Malaysia, or in the Chinese diaspora the world over. Handbook of the Chinese Family provides an overview of economics, politics, race, ethnicity, and culture within and external to the Chinese family as a social institution. While simultaneously evaluating its own methodological tools, this book will set current knowledge in the context of what has been previously studied as well as future research directions. It will examine inter-family relationships and politics as well as childrearing, education, and family economics to provide a rounded and in-depth view.


From the book reviews:

“The handbook has rich information about issues related to Chinese families living in diverse geographical areas around the world. The book is of interest to readers who are interested in Chinese culture, family policy, and family issues. The contents are accessible to both experienced researchers and general public who are interested in the Chinese culture. The book can be used as a reference for both graduate and undergraduate courses in Chinese studies and any related social science courses.” (Jing Jian Xiao, Journal of Family and Economic Issues, Vol. 35, 2014)

“Sociologist Chan (Hong Kong Baptist Univ.) brings together 41 interdisciplinary scholars to offer a comprehensive examination of Chinese families in mainland China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Australia, Canada, and the US. ... this is an important contribution to sociology of the family, and widely accessible to readers who want to learn more about Chinese families from different perspectives. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All levels/libraries.” (M. C. Cheng, Choice, Vol. 50 (11), August, 2013)
