Review

"This book provides a well-written and fascinating picture of the positive face of Chinatown as an economic enclave that provides an alternative path for immigrants to succeed in American without losing their strong ethnic identity and ocmmunity....The author provides an excellent account of the historical and structural factors that have led to the formation and continuation of Chinatown as an urban enclave since the post-1965 Chinese immigration period."
Social Science Quarterly


"Chinatown is a captivating story of East meeting West in greater New York City."
American Journal of Sociology

Ethnic enclaves as an alternative means of incorporation into the larger society
