"Amid the din of public discourse on Asian parenting that is based more on opinions than facts, Pei-Chia Lan’s Raising Global Families is a welcome intervention, providing much-needed clarity on the complexity and dynamism of Chinese parenting values and practices. Its main contribution is to take seriously the diversity and fluidity of Chinese parenting, elucidating the ways in which parents navigate their children’s education, care, and discipline across social contexts."

 

- Yến Lê Espiritu, University of California, San Diego
 

"Lan’s deceptively simple methodology and unpretentious text deliver a rich documentary of how lives are being shaped and lived across the world and across generations... Raising a child may seem a private and everyday occurrence, but under Lan’s gaze, it distills the sociological vectors that position the family in contemporary global flows. I can’t recommend this book enough."
 

—Catherine Doherty, University of Glasgow

 

"Pei-Chia Lan makes an extraordinary contribution to contemporary scholarship on parenting strategies by demonstrating how ethnic culture and social class interact within four different social groups spanning two geographic regions. As she does, she illuminates complex processes such as globalization and transnationalism, making this a superb book for classroom use."
 

—Margaret K. Nelson, author of Parenting Out of Control: Anxious Parents in Uncertain Times

"Raising Global Families dispels the myth of the tiger mom, telling a compelling story of parenting that is less about unique cultures than about the forces of globalization. Through thoughtful and meticulous analysis of ethnographic data in transnational contexts, Pei-Chia Lan demonstrates how Chinese parents in Taiwan and the United States cope with their intensified feelings of ambivalence and insecurity and how this surfaces in childrearing. This study advances the understanding of parenting beyond the family and local milieus."
 

—Min Zhou, University of California, Los Angeles

"Lan's insightful and skillfully-written book offers an intimate glimpse into the lives of Taiwanese families in Taiwan and the United States who endeavor to raise upwardly-mobile children. This is a must-read for all who seek to understand family, class, and mobility in the age of global capitalism."
 

—Carolyn Chen, University of California, Berkeley
