In Diaspora and Trust Adrian H. Hearn proposes that a new paradigm of socio-economic development is gaining importance for Cuba and Mexico. Despite their contrasting political ideologies, both countries must build new forms of trust among the state, society, and resident Chinese diaspora communities if they are to harness the potentials of China's rise. Combining political and economic analysis with ethnographic fieldwork, Hearn analyzes Cuba's and Mexico's historical relations with China, and highlights how Chinese diaspora communities are now deepening these ties. Theorizing trust as an alternative to existing models of exchange-which are failing to navigate the world's shifting economic currents-Hearn shows how Cuba and Mexico can reformulate the balance of power between state, market, and society. A new paradigm of domestic development and foreign engagement based on trust is becoming critical for Cuba, Mexico, and other countries seeking to benefit from China's growing economic power and social influence.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Hearn renders a book that is well researched, refined, important, and timely. Most impressive of all, Diaspora and Trust is accessible without lacking complexity or sophistication. It will appeal to academics and nonacademics equally." -- Dalia Antonia Muller * New West Indian Guide *
"An important book. . . . Diaspora and Trust deserves thoughtful consideration from scholars of Asia's transpacific communities as well as those who study immigration, anthropology, and history." -- Grace Pena Delgado * Journal of Chinese Overseas *
"A unique blending of macrolevel economic analysis and microlevel ethnographic work, Adrian Hearn moves fluidly between different scales of analysis, steeping readers in a discussion of international trade agreements and shifting national economic policies, while inviting them into the ramshackle building of a Chinese association in Havana's barrio chino, or a Tijuana taxi cab where local actors humanize statistics and acronyms. . . . Well researched, refined, important, and timely. Most impressive of all, Diaspora and Trust is accessible without lacking complexity or sophistication. It will appeal to academics and nonacademics equally." -- Dalia Antonia Muller * New West Indian Guide *
