Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A fascinating collection of essays that recovers the lives and experiences of individuals who staked their claim to Chinese American identity. The first section of the book focuses on the in-coming immigrants. The second section looks at their children, who deeply felt the contradictions between Chinese and American culture, but attempted to find a balance between the two.
