Summary
"The Chinese Americans is the source on the entire Chinese American experience, from Chinese sailors first arriving in the 1780s up to today. This volume chronicles the history of the Chinese diaspora in the United States and the economic, social, and political struggles of Chinese Americans. Along with a survey of Chinese American contributions to art, literature, and film, Tong presents a look at the fluid Chinese American identities, through the lens of the "model minority," assimilation, evolving family life, women's roles, and homosexuals. Biographical portraits of many notable Chinese Americans enhance the text."--BOOK JACKET
