Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chinese immigrants into the United States encountered persistent bigotry and racial prejudice. Despite their many contributions, the Chinese were thought incapable of assimilation. From 1882 to 1943, most Chinese were legally barred from immigrating, the only national group ever singled out for exclusion. Chinese immigrants persevered, put down roots, started families, built communities, and made inestimable contributions to American culture and life.
