Formatted Abstract/Summary
This postscript situates a fascinating collection of essays on Chinese-Australian politics, activism and resistance among a wider body of related disciplines and fields of research. Especially important is understanding how critical or 'analytical-empirical' cosmopolitan approaches underpin the work of the essays' authors. This is expressed as the extent to which the tension between the national and what is beyond its reach represents a mundane expression of the life worlds of its historical subjects. This final chapter also plots how the long history of Chinese Australians contributes to a more expansive and cosmopolitan notion of Australian political history, not only in terms of the transnational reach of our political affiliations but in the people-to-people networks that have defined Chinese Australians as transnational actors in the Asia-Pacific region.
