James Coates, a Postdoctoral Fellow at Waseda University, reviews Wind Over Water: Migration in an East Asian Context. The book provides an overview of migration in East Asia and several ethnographic case studies linguistically grounded in the region. It is divided into three sections: Migration, States and Cities; Family, Gender, Lifestyle and Culture; and Work, Ethnicity, and Nationality. The text deals specifically with Japan, China, Vietnam, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Korea.
