The Chinese immigrants who came to the United States in the second half of the 19th century did not simply blend into the general population. Driven by discrimination, language barriers, and their own cultural needs, they established unique communities known as Chinatowns within the cities of America. Here were friendly faces and voices, familiar foods, and opportunities to work in shops and businesses serving their own needs.

This book was very informative about the Chinese culture and way of life in urban 'Chinatowns.' I found it very helpful for my research paper, as there was ample information. The in-depth examination of the Chinese American way of life and the colorful use of imagery kept me very interested and absorbed. Trust me, you will love this book.
