Format: Hardcover
This book is a MUST-READ for anyone interested in understanding Chinese Chicago in the 1930s from an "insider's perspective."
Although the book centers on the lives of Chinese laundrymen, the countless interviews detailed throughout the book helps the reader understand what life must have been like for the average Chinese in Chicago not just that of Chinese landrymen.
