Reviews

Paisanos Chinos is a well-written and well-documented study of the Chinese Mexican community. With this book, González has added new depth to our understanding of this diasporic community.-- (12/01/2018)
"Well-researched and -written, Paisanos Chinos expands the use of multinational sources, especially Chinese sources, in constructing the history of Chinese Mexicans. This transnational approach sets a precedent for future historians to follow. In terms of class adaptation, Paisanos Chinos is suitable for upper-division undergraduate or graduate-level classes in Mexican history and Asian diasporas history and is great additional reading for a Cold War history class. The book can also be used in Asian American studies classes to expand students' intellectual horizons."--Journal of Asian American Studies
"Scholars of the Chinese diaspora in the Americas will want to read the latest addition to this growing field, Paisanos Chinos. It is a well-written and fairly well-researched book on Chinese Mexican political formation. Fredy Gonza ´lez's scholarship on the Chinese Mexican community, understudied in Latin American history and scholarship on global Asias, is excellent, rigorous, and compelling."--Hispanic American Historical Review
