Elusive Refuge recovers the history of China’s twentieth-century refugees. Focusing on humanitarian efforts to find new homes for Chinese displaced by civil strife, historian Laura Madokoro points out a constellation of factors―entrenched bigotry in white settler societies such as Canada, the spread of human rights ideals, and the geopolitical pressures of the Cold War―which coalesced to shape domestic and international refugee policies that still hold sway today.
