            New Chinese Migrants in New Zealand: Becoming Cosmopolitan? Roots, Emotions, and Everyday Diversity (Paperback)

            There are growing waves of 'desirable' migrants from Asia moving to New Zealand, a place experiencing increasing ethnic diversity, particularly in its largest metropolitan region Auckland. In purely demographic terms much of this diversity has been generated by policy shifts sinc...e the 1980s and the adoption of a comparatively liberal immigration policy based on personal merit without discrimination on the grounds of race, national or ethnic origin. Due to these changes, migrants from China, and Asia more broadly, have become increasingly significant in migration flows into New Zealand. This in turn makes New Zealand a valuable case study for understanding how Chinese migrants integrate into and affect their host nation. Wang attempts to close a gap in contemporary research by relating cosmopolitanism to migration, particularly in the Asian context. With a cosmopolitan gaze towards migration studies, she makes four key contributions to the ongoing scholarly discussion. Firstly, this is the first comprehensive study to use cosmopolitanism as a framework to study the lives of contemporary Chinese migrants, with implications for migration studies as a whole. It sheds light on the relationship between cosmopolitanism and migrant mobility, taking a new approach to examine the living paradigms of international migrants. Secondly, this book identifies the emergence and development of cosmopolitanism outside the domain of Western middle-class groups. The concept of 'rooted cosmopolitanism' is utilised to break down the Eurocentric notion of cosmopolitanism, and to show the role played by Chinese rootedness during the process of becoming cosmopolitan and encountering diversity. Thirdly, the book advances and enriches the knowledge of studies in 'everyday cosmopolitanism', by focusing on 'cosmopolitanism from below', locating quotidian and 'down-to-earth' cosmopolitan engagements that are grounded in everyday migrant lives. Fourthly, it looks at the emotional dimension of migr

            One woman's tenacious journey to escape poverty and create a billion-dollar farming business--without ever leaving the land she loved. The youngest of her parents' combined twenty-one children living on a failing farm in Southern Illinois, Sarah Frey grew up hungry, often having ...to catch or kill her own dinner with her siblings. Angered by her parents' continual cycle of losing the family farm to the bank, Frey started her own farmstand and produce delivery business at age fifteen. By the time she was seventeen she was able to buy back the family farm herself. Today her company, Frey Farms, is one of America's largest produce suppliers, owning farmland across seven states. The Growing Season is the story of how Sarah's tough childhood propelled her to grab any opportunity and take risks, believing she had little to lose. Filled with amazing stories of how this gutsy teenager talked her way into boardrooms and deals with business-suited retailers more than twice her age, the book will inspire a wide range of readers, and especially young women entrepreneurs. Now forty-three, Sarah Frey is already a business legend with a powerful story to tell. Her book has plenty of tips for female entrepreneurs, like Don't play their game, play your game and Don't doubt yourself, even if you feel under-qualified, as so many women tend to do.
