"In Eurasian, Emma Jinhua Teng compares Chinese-Western mixed-race families in the United States, China, and Hong Kong, examining both the range of ideas that shaped the formation of Eurasian identities in these diverse contexts and the claims set forth by individual Eurasians concerning their own identities....[and shows] how changes in interracial ideology have allowed the descendants of some of these families to reclaim their dual heritage with pride."
