"The sojourners, who were China-oriented and non-English-speaking, suffered from persistent inequality, racial conflict, alienation, and subordination. . . . The ABC, who constantly faced conflicting values and had to deal with various assimilation problems, generally led a dual life and bore feelings of ambivalence. . . . The highly educated student-immigrants . . . tend to emphasize cultural pluralism and national diversity . . ." -- p. xv.
