Very Good! Jan. 14 2005
By Lorn Richey - Published on
Format: Paperback
This has got to be the most in-depth book on the creation of a Chinatown (or any neighborhood for that matter) in the United States. Anyone interested in community development, the Asian American experience, or Chinese immigration to the U.S. should read this book. Very good black and white photos, maps, and reproductions of old documents.

Very factual. Could use a different title. July 4 2014

I was hoping there would be more anecdotes to this book given the title. Although Marie Wong does include plenty of interesting political occurrences between communities, the back to back litigations begin to become repetitive. Still fun to indulge in history, nonetheless.
