Anthropologist Clayton examines how identity manifested itself in Macau in the years leading up to its reversion to China in 1999, as the Portuguese administration attempted to foster a unique Sino-Western character… Clayton’s account is highly anecdotal and personal—the first-person pronoun is used liberally—as well as thoughtful and nuanced.—R.E. Entenmann, Choice
