Has there been any books on market dominant minorities like the Parsis, Jews in the Rhineland and the diamond trade, Indians in Africa and the South Pacific, and ethnic Chinese in South East Asia, or Vietnamese in the Gulf Coast, or East Asians in the dry cleaning business and the financial strategies that they use to gain their market dominant position?

All I can remember are conspiracy books and Amy Chua's the world on fire, but there are questions about the quality of the author obviously.

I also remember Peter Turchin's book about ethic nepotism and exploitation of tribes with less inter ethnic solidarity.
