among 是個介係詞，其意為"在…之間 "，用於三個或三個以上的人或物之間，或竉统的一群人或一些物之間，。舉例如下：
1 Paris is among the largest cities in the world.
2 Among all Taiwanese singers, I like WuBai best.
3 Guo, Tai-ming is among the wealthy.
另外， between用於“兩者之間”，例如 There is no secret between you and me. (你和我之間是沒有秘密的)。

If you just want to know what "among" means in Chinese, then you will have trouble to use it in the future. Besides "among" has "在...之中(中間)" meaning, there is another word in English has the same Chinese meaning: amidst

Now, the question is, why uses "among" in the questioned sentence, but not "amidst"?

if you translate among or amidst, they all get translated as "在...之中(中間)" and they are ALL used for 3 or more than 3. However, when they are used in the sentence they don't mean the same context.

among as MINGLING or INTERMIXING with distinct or separate objects.
Use among with plural, countable nouns— for example: among friends, among passengers.

amidst as being in the MIDDLE OF or SURROUNDED BY something
amidst for use with uncountable mass nouns — for example: amidst the crowd, amid congestion.
