Floating Lives is a unique examination of media and communication within diasporic ethnic communities, using in-depth studies of some of Australia's main Asian diasporic groups: the Chinese, Indian, Vietnamese, and Thai communities. Going beyond conventional cross-cultural studies of mainstream media consumption, this book explores the ethnic community as a determining force in negotiating new hybrid identities and cultures--and demonstrates experiences common to diasporic communities worldwide.
