The New Chinatown: Revised Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Newspapers today are filled with stories of corruption and strife in America's Chinatowns, reversing the popular view of Chinese Americans as a model minority of law-abiding, hard-working people whose diligent children end up in high-tech jobs. In The New Chinatown, Peter Kwong goes beyond the headlines in a compelling and detailed account of the political and cultural isolation of Chinese-American communities. This new edition offers a revised and updated text as well as a new chapter on Chinatown in the 1990s.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [213]-220) and index.

About the Author

Peter Kwong, director of the Asian American Studies Program at Hunter College, is a Chinatown activist and the author of Chinatown, New York: Labor and Politics, 1930-1950.
