Price: 22.00 AUD

New York: The New Press, 2005. Uncorrected Proof Copy, xvii+494pp, notes, bibliography, paperback. From award-winning author Peter Kwong and Dusanka Miscevic comes a definitive portrait of Chinese Americans, one of the oldest immigrant groups and fastest-growing communities in the United States. Beginning with stories of Chinese frontiersmen who came to the West Coast by the thousands in the mid-nineteenth century and continuing to the high-tech transnationals who have helped spark the development of today's booming Chinese American "ethnoburbs," this engrossing narrative recounts stories of extraordinary hardship, discrimination, and success. Chinese America is a landmark analysis that draws on firsthand reporting in Asia and the U.S. Offering a new picture of the country's development, Kwong and Miscevic provide the first comprehensive report on the suburban immigrant communities that are transforming America.
