      Chinatown Unbound: Trans-Asian Urbanism in the Age of China
Chinatowns are familiar places in almost all major cities in the world In popular Western wisdom, the restaurants, pagodas, and red lanterns are intrinsically equated with a self contained, immigrant Chinese district, an alien enclave of the East in the West By the 1980s, when these Western societies had largely given up their racially discriminatory immigration policies and opened up to Asian immigration, the dominant conception of Chinatown was no longer that of an abject ethnic ghetto rather, Chinatown was now seen as a positive expression of multicultural heritage and difference By the early 21st century, however, these spatial and cultural constructions of Chinatown as an other space whether negative or positive have been thoroughly destabilised by the impacts of accelerating globalisation and transnational migration This book provides a timely and much needed paradigm shift in this regard, through an in depth case study of Sydney s Chinatown It speaks to the growing multilateral connections that link Australia and Asia and especially China together not just economically, but also socially and culturally, as a consequence of increasing transnational flows of people, money, ideas and things Further, the book elicits a particular sense of a placein Sydney s Chinatown that of an inte connected world in which Western and Asian realms inhabit each other, and in which the orientalist legacy is being reconfigured in new deployments and complex delimitations As such, Chinatown Unbound engages with, and contributes to making sense of, the epochal shift in the global balance of power towards Asia, especially China.
