Reviews

"An incisive analysis . . . indispensable to anyone interested in New York's history." β€”Mike Wallace, co-author of Gotham

"A splendid work of class struggles and social movements that demystifies commonplace notions of a homogeneous or socially isolated Chinatown. A must read." β€”Gary Okihiro
