41 Essays on Chinese America
A joint project of the Asian American Studies Center, UCLA and CHSSC


This book presents an engaging, and oftentimes moving, expression of the Chinese American experience, which should be of considerable interest to the general reader. It is hoped that this collection of essays from the first conference on Chinese Americans in twelve years will be a valuable resource for scholar and layperson alike. The diversity of subjects, from history into political empowerment, education, literature, performing arts, business, and transformation, mirrors the rapid growth and developing complexity of the Chinese American community itself.
