Wong, Bernard
Urban Anthropology, 6, 1, 1-22, Spr 77
The traditional elite, born in China, is over 50 years old, owns Chinese-type businesses, derives its power from family name and territorial dialect associations, and leads a traditional Chinese life-style. The new elite, born in the U.S., is 25 to 50 years of age, works in social service agencies, and leads an American middle class life-style. (Author/JM)
