Dominic Meng-Hsuan Yang of the University of Missouri–Columbia reviews Identity, Hybridity, and Cultural Home: Chinese Migrants and Diaspora in Multicultural Societies, by Shuang Liu. This book explores the multifaceted concept of cultural identity to uncover the meaning of cultural home for Chinese immigrants in multicultural environments. It questions the conventional notion of a stable and secure cultural identity, challenges the common conception of bilingualism and biculturalism, analyses hybrid identities, and identifies directions for future research on the critical issue of searching for a cultural home in a multicultural society.
