The present study is a ground-breaking comparison of Chinese ethnohistory, both Punti and Hakka, in three widely-separated places:  South China, the Hawaiian Islands, and California. Its focus is both chronologically early and non-urban, or rural. It was written by three generations of scholars, two historians and one archaeologist, within a single family.
