I am grateful to a number of institutions and individuals for the support they have given to this project. Preliminary research funding was provided by a Humanities Graduate Research Grant and the Robert H. Lowie Fund at the University of California at Berkeley. Generous funding for a year of research in Hong Kong was provided by a grant from the Joint Committee on Chinese Studies of the American Council of Learned Societies and the Social Science Research Council. A grant from the Mabelle McLeod Lewis Memorial Fund contributed to the first stage of writing. A summer stipend from the National Endowment for the Humanities and a grant from the Faculty Research and Creative Activities Support Fund of Western Michigan University provided funds for research at the Basel Mission Archives in Switzerland.

I can never adequately express my appreciation to all the individuals in Hong Kong who have contributed to my research in some way. This book is especially dedicated to the women and men of Shung Him Tong village who were at once gracious hosts, kind friends, and wise teachers. In particular I must thank Cheung Yan Lun (Andrew), who always exhibits the best of "Hakka qualities," and who was kind enough to read and comment on a draft of this book. Without his helpful comments, and those of Rev. Tong Siu Ling, Pang Chui On, Cheung Sui Wing, Tsui Pui Tin, Leung Pui Tong, Esther Chang, Lam Wai Tak, Li Chiu Lai, Lin Yat San, Lin Yan San, and the many Tsuis, Cheungs, Pangs, Chans, Lings, Lins, Lams, Lungs, Tongs, and Yaos of Shung Him Tong, as well as the Wans of Ma Wat village, I could not have written this book. I am also indebted to several of the members and leaders of the Shung Him Tong youth group, especially my good friends and companions Pang Wai Ying (Mildred) and Fu Yan Ho. There are many others whose names I have left out, not by design or lack of appreciation, but because they were so numerous.

Several people from the Tsung Tsin and Basel missions deserve to be acknowledged here: Rev. Chow Tin Wo, Rev. Yu Wai Hong, Mr. Simon P. K. Sit, Rev. and Mrs. Richard Deutsch, and Rev. Hans Lutz. Paul Jenkins and his staff at the Basel Mission Archives were most generous with their time and assistance. Rev. Carl Smith, Bart Tsui, Louise Ho, Daniel and Grace Lin, Sr. Ann Gray, Anita Weiss, and Jash and Elisabeth Dahele were consultants, advisors, and friends. David Faure and Nicholas Tapp of the Chinese University of Hong Kong provided me with important references and useful suggestions. Thanks also to Rev. Kong Bou-ling of the YMCA, Fr. Harold Naylor of Wah Yan College, Esther Ng of the China Graduate School of Theology, John Dolfin of the Universities Service Centre, and Cora Man of the Yale in China Language School. I am grateful to the Hong Kong government for its cooperation and particularly for the help of Sir David Akers-Jones, Paul Tsui, James Hayes, Raymond Pang, Matthew K. C. Cheung, and the staffs at the Fanling District Office, the Lands Office, the Public Records Office, and the Government Secretariat Library. Kwong Lai King (Rica), Poon Lai Ying (Cecilia), Liang Shuk Fan (Estella), Cheung Man Hon (Michael), and Chung Yuet Fong provided valuable assistance with translations of written Chinese materials. Peter Haenger and Nicholas Schaffner have earned my gratitude for their painstaking work translating Basel mission archival materials from German handwritten in Gothic script.

A number of teachers and colleagues have earned my respect and gratitude. The help and encouragement of William A. Shack, friend and advisor at the University of California at Berkeley, have been invaluable. I have benefited from his meticulous editing of my research proposals, his careful responses to my field notes, and his continued generous and critical attention to my written work. I am also grateful to James Anderson, Burton Benedict, Stanley Brandes, Alan Dundes, Thomas Gold, Nelson Graburn, and Joyce Kallgren, also at the University of California. Nancy Abelmann, Jeanne Bergman, Pamela Myers Moro, Lesley Sharp, Jacqueline Urla, and members of the dissertation writing group at Berkeley also deserve thanks for their suggestions. Donald Brown and Edwin Clausen, my teachers at the University of California at Santa Barbara, and the late Barbara E. Ward, my teacher at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, helped to spark my early interest in Asia and anthropology. I am also grateful to my friends at Western Michigan University, especially to Lee Ann Claussen and Victor Cunrui Xiong, and to Robert Sundick for helping me to secure the time and facilities to finish this book.

My work has benefited significantly from the meticulous reading and critical comments of James L. Watson and Myron L. Cohen. I also appreciate the help and support I received from Sheila Levine, Monica McCormick, and the anonymous reviewers for the University of California Press.

Finally, many Constables, Alters, and Constable-Alters have contributed directly or more subtly to this project. My deepest, most heartfelt appreciation is to Joseph S. Alter, who in his roles as anthropologist, editor, baby-sitter, cook, housekeeper, companion, and spouse, has contributed immeasurably every step of the way.
