By Aihwa Ong
In her past publication, Flexible Citizenship, anthropologist Aihwa Ong wrote of elite Asians shuttling around the Pacific. This parallel examine tells the very diversified tale of "the different Asians" whose course takes them from refugee camps to California's inner-city and high-tech enclaves. In Buddha Is Hiding we see those refugees changing into new citizen-subjects via a twin strategy of being-made and self-making, balancing non secular salvation and entrepreneurial values as they undergo and undermine, take in and deflect conflicting classes approximately welfare, paintings, medication, gender, parenting, and mass tradition. attempting to carry directly to the values of relations and residential tradition, Cambodian americans still frequently believe that "Buddha is hiding." Tracing the entangled paths of negative and wealthy Asians within the American country, Ong increases new questions on the shape and that means of citizenship in an period of globalization.
