“Sociological writing on the subject of inter-ethnic union formation at its very best. Its contribution to theory, methodological innovation, and the acuity of the analysis, including insights into the life-course dynamics of Chinese-British inter-ethnic families and the relevance of ethnicity and gender, make this book an indispensable work of scholarship for all those interested in the broader topic of the sociology of ethnic relations.” (Peter J Aspinall, University of Kent)
