Cultivating Connections: The Making of Chinese Prairie Canada

"Cultivating Connections is a major breakthrough in the research of social history. Combining years of careful documentary research, including a thorough canvass of available English and Chinese sources, with an oral history component in Prairie Chinese communities, Marshall has gained access to valuable networks of relationships. I recommend her book highly." -- Timothy J. Stanley, author of Contesting White Supremacy: School Segregation, Anti-Racism, and the Making of Chinese Canadians

Alison Marshall is Professor of Religion at Brandon University.  Her areas of research are Asian religion including Confucianism, Buddhism, Daoism, new religious movements, and Chinese and Filipino history and gender.
