The author analyses two sub-groups of Chinese children: those with parents coming from Hong Kong and those with parents coming from Mainland China.

The purpose of this study is to investigate how these apparently Chinese children feel about their ethnic identity. By drawing upon Bourdieus concepts of habitus, and a cultural studies approach to ethnicity and identity in general, the author examines the characteristics of cultural specificity and heterogeneity. Methodologically, the author has chosen an ethnographic approach.

Prominence is given to the definitions, perspectives and voices of the children themselves by conducting open-ended, indepth and informal interviews and by doing so on an extended basis. The whole process continued for two and half years. Close attention was paid to the childrens immediate circumstances, their parental occupations and their general social and cultural conditions.
